UN Food Systems Summit Independent Dialogues
June 17, 2021
This UN Food Systems Summit Dialogue will explore opportunities to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in agriculture. AgMissionTM, a collaborative effort from the Foundation for Food & Agriculture Research (FFAR) and the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers in Action (USFRA), is focused on mobilizing farmers, ranchers and scientists globally to co-create and activate climate-smart farming solutions, making agriculture net-negative for GHG emissions. By creating a comprehensive, coordinated effort, we maximize knowledge, investment and scalability. AgMission builds an expansive public-private partnership grounded in technology, research and worldwide data sharing. By working together, we can close the gaps in agriculture-climate research and data integration to accelerate the development and adoption of new and proven on-farm climate solutions.
Through a series of breakout discussions, we hope to engage farmers, ranchers and scientists in a candid conversation about accelerating innovative climate-smart practices.
Food Systems Summit Dialogues are a critical component of the Food Systems Summit process. The Dialogues offer a purposeful and organized forum for stakeholders to come together to share their roles in food systems, consider their impacts on others and find new ways to partner in support of the Sustainable Development Goals. The outcomes of the Summit Dialogues will guide individual and collective action towards a future of food that is sustainable, equitable and secure.
