This paper analyzes how the land sector is being represented within a select group of INDCs. It is a summary of priority thematic issues related to agriculture, forestry, other land uses, and climate change. It is not an exhaustive analysis of each country’s submission or of all INDCs. The issue areas of emphasis look at how the INDC may: a) advance sustainable forestry strategies (including REDD+), b) promote Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA) practices that reduce deforestation, c) strive to increase yields and incomes, and d) help vulnerable communities adapt to climate change.
