The strategy is intended to assist developing countries improve their adaptive capacity to climate change and their capacity for disaster risk reduction and for dealing with climate-related and natural disasters. It is also intended to play a part in ending hunger, achieving food security, improving nutrition and promoting sustainable food systems built on agriculture, aquaculture and fisheries.
Climate change is increasing food insecurity. Food production systems and small farmers need to be better equipped to deal with the impact of climate change through good agricultural practices, better advisory services, improvements in plant and animal health and supplies of seed adapted to local conditions. Climate change and security is also included in the strategy in consideration of the 20 countries where the level of exposure to climate change is highest are also dealing with armed conflicts.
Implementation of the strategy will be a joint effort involving the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the embassies, the Ministry of Climate and Environment, the Ministry of Agriculture and Food, the Ministry of Justice and Public Security, and Norad and Norfund.

However, scaling of technology for carbon capture is currently not expected to start before 2030 and will not achieve a significant level until 2040 without government incentives and cost-reduction initiatives by the energy industry, according to DNV GL.
