Ceris Jones

During the high-level plenary session of the UN climate talks in Poland, COP24, Ceris Jones, facilitator of the WFO Working Group on Climate Change, presented a statement on behalf of the farmers’ constituency, representing hundreds of millions of farmers across the world.

The ‘High Level Segment’ sees Ministers and Heads of State delivering their national statements, on their policies and ambition to tackle climate change and to prepare for its impacts. This part of the climate talks also offers non-governmental organisations – such as research bodies, trades unions, environmental organisations and farmers – a platform to have their say.

Listen to Ceris Jones speaking about the key asks of farmers worldwide: innovation and technology transfer, and research and extension services, to boost productivity and resilience in support of world food security.
