As a 'proof of concept', areas with high/low food system dynamics and high/low climate dynamics have been identified on a map of Mali and Burkina Faso. A procedure has been proposed to make this approach useful in the policy cycle of DGIS and the embassies. This procedure is innovative as it assists to define new food and nutrition security programmes at the front end of the programing process. An earlier version (climate lens 1.0) aimed at making existing programmes climate smart, and doesn't enable to explicitly include the geopolitical dimension of migration. There, the DSU issued an advice on making food and nutrition security programmes more climate smart and produced a one-page interactive matrix with an overview of options.
