Join the BIFAD Subcommittee at COP27: Achieving Ambitious Food System Transformation, A Listening Session
Please join USAID and experts drafting a key report that will inform USAID’s agriculture, nutrition, and food security work on Monday, November 14th at 6:25 pm EET (12:23 EST) at the Food Systems Pavilion at COP27 (and online). This listening session will seek input from COP attendees and the wider public on the preliminary findings of a study on systemic approaches to climate change adaptation and mitigation in agricultural, nutrition, and food systems. The study results will inform program and policy decision making by USAID.
The BIFAD Subcommittee on Systemic Solutions for Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation in Agricultural, Nutrition, and Food Systems is guiding a BIFAD-commissioned study that draws upon existing evidence and consultation with subject-matter experts in the following areas: climate-resilient pathways for inclusive, transformative systemic change in food, agricultural, and nutrition systems; priority systems for inclusive transformation in food, agriculture, and nutrition; and barriers to inclusive transformation in agricultural, nutrition, and food systems; priority leverage points for transformative systemic change; and climate finance to catalyze inclusive adaptation and mitigation actions in the agricultural, food, and nutrition sector.
In this listening session, members of the subcommittee and authors of the BIFAD-commissioned study will present preliminary findings, with dedicated time for participant comment and discussion. The session objectives are to 1) improve recommendations for the ambitious implementation of USAID's Climate Strategy, 2) identify points of consensus and key gaps based on feedback from the wider agricultural, nutrition, food systems and climate change communities, and 3) strengthen the utility of the study based on community recommendations.
Join USAID and BIFAD subcommittee experts at the listening session on Monday, November 14 at 6:25 pm EET (12:25 pm EST) to provide advice and feedback on the preliminary findings, and your recommendations for how USAID should support food systems transformation.
The event will take place in person at the Food Systems Pavilion in Sharm El-Sheikh. Virtual participants are invited to join through the Food Systems Pavilion YouTube channel, which will include a live chat function for participants’ comments and input.
