Reviewing COP28 Outcomes for Food Security
In the lead-up to COP28, the UAE presidency promised to devote significant attention to agriculture and food security during COP proceedings. As negotiations are ongoing in Dubai, hopes remain high that conference outcomes will spotlight climate finance, adaptation, and resilience among producers, and emphasize the importance of reducing greenhouse gas emissions across food systems. The International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) is working to ensure COP28 outcomes are inclusive and supportive of rural communities, doing so in part through the IFAD13 campaign that has a particular focus on supporting communities in fragile contexts, investing in biodiversity, and increasing private sector engagement.
Please join the CSIS Global Food and Water Security Program on Monday, December 18 at 11:00am EST for an engaging conversation on COP28 outcomes, including the importance of investing in small-scale producers to support global food security. CSIS is honored to welcome U.S. Special Envoy for Global Food Security Dr. Cary Fowler and IFAD Associate Vice President for External Relations and Governance Satu Santala, joined by Director of the CSIS Sustainable Development and Resilience Initiative Noam Unger for this panel discussion.
This event is made possible by the generous support of the International Fund for Agricultural Development.
