Farmers are the foundation of our food systems, yet small-scale farmers and producers in the Global South are especially at risk from climate change. Current efforts to adapt are insufficient. We need to act now to accelerate the financing and implementation of climate action in agri-food and livestock systems for the world’s most vulnerable people to reduce emissions and ensure food and nutrition security. Locally-led principles and systems approaches can help elevate food systems positive potential to address the climate crisis.

This event will enhance the understanding of how sustainable agri-food and livestock systems can help mitigate the impacts of land degradation, enhance biodiversity, and play an important role in the transformation of food systems. The session will bring together farmer representatives, leaders of global initiatives and policymakers to share their visions and actions to galvanise increased support for investing in sustainable and healthy smallholder producers.
