[COP26 Side Event] Taking Action for a Brighter Future
About the event
Research and innovation in food, land and water systems are crucial elements of the efforts needed to achieve global climate goals. This side-event, hosted by CGIAR with ICARDA and the African Development Bank (AfDB), will outline demand-side perspectives on the challenges and opportunities for climate adaption in these interlinked systems, and present innovative solutions at different geopolitical levels. Panelists from a wide range of backgrounds will weigh in on the solutions presented in an engaging “talk show”-format discussion.
This event aims to spark discussion on ways to enhance ambition for climate action in food, land and water systems, mobilizing leaders from business, tech and innovation, civil society and farming, and highlighting challenges and opportunities. It will highlight the essential role of research, innovation and action in food, land and water systems in helping countries achieve their commitments to the Paris Agreement and other global climate-related goals, including through CGIAR’s new portfolio.
