Stepping up Climate Action in Food Systems to Achieve Zero Hunger
The World Bank
Date: 19 January 2024, 9:30 am - 11:00 am
Motivation: The world is not on track to limit global warming to the Paris Agreement’s target. The global foodsystem is not only vulnerable to climate change but is also a major contributor: Food systems account for a third of global emissions and are the leading contributor of methane and nitrous oxide emissions and biodiversity loss. Agriculture has the potential to heal the planet – if we make the necessary investments and policy changes now to fix a broken food system. We must urgently transform the way we produce, distribute and consume food to limit climate change and improve food security for the world’s growing population.
The objective of the panel is to discuss a global pathway for reducing food system emissions, highlighting specific actions for low-, middle-, and high-income countries. It will draw on the latest seminal research, including the upcoming Word Bank Flagship Report Recipe for a Livable Planet: Transforming the Agrifood System to Combat Climate Change, as well as concrete country-level experiences.
Key topics: The panel will provide an overview of agrifood emission sources and highlight the most costeffective pathways for reducing emissions in low-, middle-, and high-income countries.
The panel will provide concrete examples of mitigation measures, for example reducing food loss and waste and tackling methane emissions from livestock and rice. It will also flag the urgent need to scale up climate finance for GHG mitigation in the agrifood sector.
