In the lead-up to the 2022 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change 27th Conference of Parties (COP27), BIFAD will host its 187th public meeting focused on the ongoing BIFAD-commissioned study on systemic solutions for climate change adaptation and mitigation in agricultural, nutrition, and food systems. The meeting will be hosted on Zoom. Register to participate here (external link).
The study—guided by the BIFAD Subcommittee on Systemic Solutions for Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation in Agriculture, Nutrition, and Food Systems and expected to be finalized in spring 2023—aims to inform BIFAD’s advice to USAID on program design and targets to achieve transformative, systemic change and climate finance scaling for the agriculture, food, and nutrition sectors.
On October 26th, authors of the report will present and discuss their preliminary findings related to the following:
- Climate-resilient pathways for inclusive, transformative systemic change in agricultural, nutrition, and food systems;
- Priority systems for inclusive transformation in food, agriculture, and nutrition;
- Barriers to inclusive transformation in agricultural, nutrition, and food systems;
- Priority leverage points for transformative systemic change; and
- Climate finance solutions to catalyze inclusive adaptation and mitigation actions in the agricultural, food, and nutrition sector.
Following the presentation, members of the subcommittee, BIFAD, USAID, and public participants will comment and react to the working paper. The public is invited to comment on the report's preliminary findings and recommendations and to submit additional case studies, evidence, and relevant publications to inform the study. The working paper will be posted here in advance of the October 26th meeting.
