Abstract
The Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA), at its thirty-eighth session, invited Parties and admitted observer organizations to submit to the secretariat, by 2 September 2013, their views on the current state of scientific knowledge on how to enhance the adaptation of agriculture to climate change impacts while promoting rural development, sustainable development and productivity of agricultural systems and food security in all countries, particularly in developing countries. This should take into account the diversity of the agricultural systems and the differences in scale as well as possible adaptation co-benefits.1 It requested the secretariat to compile the submissions into a miscellaneous document for consideration at SBSTA 39. The secretariat has received 13 such submissions from Parties. In accordance with the procedure for miscellaneous documents, these submissions are attached and reproduced in the languages in which they were received and without formal editing. In line with established practice, the two submissions received from intergovernmental organizations and the eight submissions received from non-governmental organizations have been posted on the UNFCCC website
