The Climate Action Review (CAR) Tool is developed by FAO and UNDP as part of the SCALA programme, and marries practical measures with long-term planning and implementation through NDCs, NAPs, and other climate commitments.

The CAR Tool aims to provide national adaptation planners and practitioners with practical guidance for transitioning from high-level NDC and NAP planning to actual implementation of locally relevant adaptation actions in agriculture and land-use sectors, fostering transformative systems-change potential.

It offers a practical, step-by-step approach to identifying actionable entry points for transformative change, drawing from adaptation actions outlined in NDCs and NAPs. The tool is adaptable to various country contexts and strategic priorities, facilitating evidence-based adaptation planning through participatory methods.

Additionally, the tool serves in its "planning function", offering insights into strategic interventions needed for future adaptation efforts, and aligns with international guidelines for NAP formulation and implementation.

The Climate Action Review (CAR) Tool is tailored to assist:
• NDC and NAP planners and focal points in government
• Senior policy or technical units in relevant ministries, departments, or agencies supporting climate change and/or agriculture sector projects
• Multilateral or bilateral organizations, civil society, or financial institutions supporting country-driven climate action and NDC/NAP implementation in the agriculture and land-use sectors
