Income from carbon/REDD+ transactions can be used to help achieve CSA. Preventing the expansion of agriculture in forests will require investments to intensify the productivity of existing agricultural areas, amongst other actions.

It is very inteesting and we have to apply in our areas. I am responsible to improve farmers's knowledge, altitude and practice on sustainable agriculture in dry zone area of Myanmar. It is very useful to encourage not only them but also myself.

Thanks for this summary. I have been wondering the same - What's new about CSA? To me it seemed a way to bypass the stalling REDD++ negotiations. In theory, for agricultural economies CSA could be a framework to help making more inclusive policies.
