    The climate-smart agriculture (CSA) concept reflects an ambition
    to improve the integration of agriculture development and climate
    responsiveness. It aims to achieve food security and broader
    development goals under a changing climate and increasing food
    demand. CSA initiatives sustainably increase productivity, enhance
    resilience, and reduce/remove greenhouse gases (GHGs), and
    require planning to address trade-offs and synergies between
    these three pillars: productivity, adaptation, and mitigation [1].
