Watch: Recordings of side events of the FAO 40th conference on four dimensions of climate change
Countries attending FAO’s 40th conference in Rome discussed climate change and food security from different perspectives linking climate-action, nutrition and migration to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Four side events related to climate change took place during this conference, which can now be watched online.
To watch the recordings of the different side events, follow these links:
- Partnering to Scale up Climate Action by Countries in the Agricultural Sectors
- Making Agriculture and Food Systems Nutrition-sensitive and Climate-smart: A win-win for the Sustainable Development Goals
- Mobilizing Agriculture and Rural Development as an Adaptation Alternative to Climate-induced Migration
- Addressing Water Scarcity and Improving Food Security under Climate Change - Perspectives from the Near East and North Africa Region
While some of the food system challenges facing humanity are local, in an interconnected world, adopting a global perspective is essential. Many environmental issues, such as climate change, need supranational commitments and action to be addressed effectively. Due to ever increasing global trade flows, prices of commodities are connected through space; a drought in Romania may thus increase the price of wheat in Zimbabwe.
