Description

The webinar is part of a Series of webinars on Food Systems Approach in practice promoted by members of the One Planet Network Sustainable Food Systems Programme (SFS Programme), a global multi-stakeholder platform to support countries in the transition towards sustainable food systems.

In the webinar, we will present the recommendations from the Report Enhancing Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) for Food Systems, recently published by WWF, UNEP, EAT and Climate Focus, which explains 16 specific food system-related mitigation and adaptation measures countries can take. Furthermore, we will discuss ways for building policy coherence and present the Glasgow Food and Climate Declaration, a national and sub-national government’s pledge to accelerate the development of integrated food policies to fight against climate change. Lastly, the webinar will explain the interlinkages between food systems approaches and climate change mitigation and adaptation, and bring national and local level governments representatives to present their measures.
