The purpose of the workshop was to support the development of national mitigation planning to advance climate smart agriculture. Key messages resulting from the workshop: 1. Agricultural NAMAs can be a pathway to green growth, food security and sustainable development. 2. Several Non-Annex 1 countries are developing agriculture sector NAMAs, including Brazil, Indonesia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Vietnam, Malawi, Kenya, and Mongolia. 3. There is a need for Annex 1 countries to support NAMA development to enhance Non-Annex 1 countries’ contribution to the reduction of GHG emissions 4. NAMAs can provide additional resources for climate smart agriculture, where multiple benefits, including mitigation benefits, are generated alongside adaptation. 5. Adaptation and mitigation are inseparable and complementary in meeting multiple goals. a. There should be synergies between NAMAs and national adaptation programs of action (NAPAs) at the national level b. Land-based (AFOLU) mitigation and adaptation practices should be integrated for implementation at sub-national levels. 6. A common methodology for developing NAMAs, including legal, institutional, financial, capacity building, and data collection frameworks, would support countries to implement agricultural NAMAs more readily. These should build on existing planning processes, tools, and technologies. 7. NAMAs require a proactive approach by countries. The climate convention should continue to encourage and enable a country‐driven process for mitigation in agriculture for developing countries. 8. Capacity building on adaptation and mitigation in agriculture is needed to support the planning and implementation of national policy.
