FFAR’s AgMission™ Director Allison Thomson spoke on a panel, From Commitment to Action: How Can Existing Initiatives & Tools Help Advance the COP28 Food Systems Transformation Agenda?, at the 28th annual U.N. Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP28).
This panel, hosted by CGIAR, the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office, and the World Bank, focused on international collaborative action to deliver a more sustainable and resilient agri-food system. The panel covered three initiatives:
- How the Agriculture Breakthrough is bringing countries together to accelerate the development, deployment and adoption of technologies and other innovative approaches;
- How the Global Policy Dialogue for Sustainable Agriculture, the UK partnership with the World Bank, is leading efforts to build momentum for policy reforms; and
- How the Just Rural Transition is bringing together a knowledge hub, a platform for multi-stakeholder dialogues and a global community of practice on the evidence, perspectives and approaches that can help drive a just transition to sustainable agriculture and food systems.
FFAR attended COP28 to highlight the urgent need for pioneering research to help the agriculture sector cope with climate change impacts. FFAR’s public-private partnership model is funding some of this critical research through the Efficient Fertilizer Consortium.
