South Asia is predominantly agrarian, and the sector is mainly driven by climate-vulnerable smallholder farmers. Rising climate-induced challenges have threatened the region’s food and nutrition security. Although South Asian governments have formulated relevant plans to address such challenges, they are at varying stages of maturity. Further, public, multilateral and private sector investments indicate a greater preference for climate mitigation vis-à-vis adaptation. Against this backdrop, this study will analyse the climate change and agri-food systems related policy context in Sri Lanka. The study aims to identify partnership and investment opportunities for climate adaptation with a focus on agri-food systems in South Asia.
