    • Global Alliance for Climate-Smart Agriculture (GACSA) members share recommendations for implementing Koronivia Joint Work on Agriculture, Gender Action Plan, and NDCs, as they relate to climate-smart agriculture (CSA). Discussions will delve into the possibilities for CSA to support the implementation of international agreements aimed at safeguarding food security and ending hunger and mainstreaming gender perspectives in all mandated areas of its interventions, such as Koronivia Joint Work on Agriculture, Gender Action Plan, and countries on the implementation of NDCs.
