National Adaptation Plan to Climate Variability and Change for the Agriculture Sector

legislation type Executive
Passed in 2019
The objective of this Plan is to guide the design, coordination, prioritisation and implementation of policies, programs and projects that address the particular climate vulnerability of the agricultural production systems in Uruguay.
In doing so, a shift towards a resilient and adapted development path for agriculture is proposed that includes co-benefits of productivity and climate mitigation.

The overall aim is to improve the livelihoods of rural populations. To this end, a Strategy with an outlook to 2050 is advanced which considers four key areas:
  1. Production systems;
  2. Ecosystems and natural resources;
  3. Livelihoods;
  4. Institutional capacities.

Next to the 2050 Strategy, a 2025 Action Plan is proposed to achieve these goals. 

66 (short term) adaptation measures are established, inter alia considering the following key issues:
  • Research and development;
  • Technology transfer;
  • Information systems;
  • Climate insurances;
  • Resilient infrastructure;
  • Promotion of good farming practices;
  • Strengthening farmer's networks and organisations; and
  • Enhancing institutional capacities for adaptation.
