Crop Trust at UNFCCC COP23

The Crop Trust hosts a series of side events at COP23 for setting an agenda for transforming agricultural development in the face of climate change.

Both part of the cause of climate change, but also part of the solution, agriculture is central to any debate on global warming and extreme weather events. The interactions between the agricultural sector and climate change have undeniable implications for both global food security and our environment.

“Agriculture Advantage: The case for climate action in agriculture” is a collaboration effort between different organizations with the same mission to transform agricultural development in the face of climate change. The event aims to articulate the different dimensions of climate actions in the agricultural sector, and links multiple side events that will be held during the 2 weeks of COP23 into a single theme.

The Crop Trust is hosting four of these events: The Opening and Context Setting Event, the Gender Advantage, the Policy Advantage, and the Breeding Advantage. Additionally, we will be hosting a Food Forever side event: Food Biodiversity for Greater Climate Resilience.
