Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA) is a sustainable farming approach that attempts to maximize resource utilization, improve long-term agricultural sustainability, and prevent environmental degradation while improving agricultural income and production. Nutrition-Sensitive Agriculture (NSA) revolves around the connections between agriculture, food systems, and health, with the goal of ensuring that agricultural practices contribute to better nutrition and well-being. This research focuses on the deployment of a Nutrition-Sensitive Climate Smart Agriculture (NSCSA) method in order to better understand its potential benefits for global food security and nutrition. The research methodology comprises a thorough analysis and review of existing literature on CSA, NSA, and NSCSA policies and practices. To address the complex concerns of food security and nutrition in the context of climate change, the article emphasizes the significance of incorporating nutrition considerations into CSA policies and initiatives. The findings further highlight the importance of multi-stakeholder collaboration and knowledge sharing in implementing and scaling up nutrition-sensitive CSA initiatives. In conclusion, the study reveals that nutrition-sensitive CSA has the potential to help achieve sustainable development goals such as food security, nutrition, and climate change mitigation and adaptation.
