Pre-Food Systems Summit 2021: SCALA session - Accelerating the implementation of the Paris Agreement through climate-resilient food systems
The joint-FAO and UNDP programme, Scaling up Climate Ambition on Land Use and Agriculture through Nationally Determined Contributions and National Adaptation Plans (SCALA) has organized a parallel session at the Pre-Food Systems Summit to bring attention to the need for a sustainable food-systems approach in the implementation of climate-resilient strategies to facilitate transformative change.
The session will aim to highlight the opportunities to mitigate climate change and build climate resilience through regenerative food systems and the importance of strengthening agriculture and land use targets under NDCs and the formulation of evidence-based NAPs for increased climate ambition and action. This session will also highlight the role of the private sector and research organisations.
The expected outcomes of the parallel session are:
- Exchange on countries’ food system policies to identify entry points and opportunities to accelerate NDCs and NAPs implementation through sustainable food systems
- Share developing country experiences, lessons learned and best practices
- Present the benefits of Private Sector Engagement (PSE) to food systems climate action
