In Eastern Africa, all 18 countries committed themselves to reducing GHG net emissions and increasing climate change resilience. 16 countries feature agriculture, land use and forestry in their mitigation contributions, and all 18 countries include agriculture in the adaptation component of their NDCs.
The analysis looks more in detail at the targets, policies and measures for mitigation in the agriculture sectors identified by the countries. In a next step, the authors focus on the regional baseline net emission and mitigation target analysis. Finally, the analysis identifies gaps and opportunities to enhance mitigation ambitions. In the next chapter, FAO summarises the priority actions and cross-sectoral measures that relate to adaptation in the agriculture sector. As with the mitigation, the report identifies gaps and opportunities to enhance the adaptation ambitions.
