This event raises awareness of circular bioeconomy opportunities to transform agrifood systems and accelerate implementation of climate action. The outcome will be a call for enhanced climate ambition with the sustainable use of biological resources and innovations across economic sectors.
The frequency and intensity of climate shocks coupled with raising violence and conflict increasingly affects the food security of millions of people worldwide. This session discusses how to strengthen the resilience of food systems and innovative interventions, including anticipatory actions, to reduce both climate and conflict threats.
Failure to acknowledge the role of climate as a “threat multiplier” jeopardizes the efficacy of national efforts to improve resilience capacities and achieve SDGs, especially in fragile settings. This panel discusses concrete food systems solutions to achieve a “climate resilience peace.”
The event highlights the main drivers of food insecurity driven by extreme events, conflicts, and socio-economic shocks and disturbances, and explores ways to build inclusive, resilient and sustainable agrifood systems for all, through scaling up disaster and climate risk management actions. The moderated discussion focuses on concrete tools and actions to tackle the increasing impacts of disasters on the most vulnerable and their communities, including the climate-related and protracted nature of food crises.
The Advanced Climate Smart Aquaculture Technologies (ACliSAT) project is promoting climate smart aquaculture systems through development and adoption of water-use efficient and cost-effective systems under water-deficient conditions and reduce global gas emission and contribute to food security.
In the Global South, farmers are observing their traditional knowledge of weather patterns is becoming increasingly unreliable for making farming decisions due to climate change, and demand climate services that can fill this vacuum. This event showcases pioneering efforts to enable meteorological agencies in the Global South to produce accurate climate information, co-create digital climate services for agricultural systems (crops, aquaculture and livestock) and support sustainable and inclusive business models.
This session introduces new findings on solar irrigation uptake and challenges in Africa and South Asia, and the potential of the technology in a climate crisis. Key stakeholders discuss tradeoffs across greenhouse gas mitigation, food and nutrition security and water depletion.
Climate-smart technologies can only help fight climate change if they are embraced by small-scale farmers. Most digital solutions are scalable and profitable especially for big farms. Our panelists discuss how digital solutions can be designed and made available in more inclusive ways.
This side event discusses evidence on the links between food systems emissions and conflict, as well as evidence on how to scale approaches for achieving low emissions food systems and peace.
This event launches new climate data and findings of studies on climate change in Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and discusses climate solutions for coastal areas and ocean economies in SIDS.
