From November 6 to 18, the Government of the Arab Republic of Egypt will host the 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP 27) to build on previous successes and pave the way for future ambition to tackle the global challenge of climate change effectively.
World leaders, alongside negotiators, government representatives and other relevant stakeholders, will convene in Sharm El-Sheikh for twelve days of talks on how to accelerate action towards a successful Paris Agreement implementation within the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
The level of attention around food systems, food production, and agriculture is rising at COP 27. For the first time ever, there will be a Food Systems Pavilion at the UN Climate Change Conference, where WFO is also involved. It is imperative to hold attention high not only on what is needed but also on the fact that agriculture offers local solutions to the climate crisis that is hitting our communities globally.
A delegation of the World Farmers’ Organisation (WFO), led by the President, Arnold Puech d’Alissac, will join the event, getting involved in several panels and roundtables, to reiterate that farmers hold an essential part of the solution to climate change, both for mitigation and adaptation, but also to generate a positive impact on nature around us.
Join us in Sharm El-Sheikh and advocate for #Farmers4Climate.
Further information on the events we are involved in will follow here soon.
