Breaking Down Barriers for an Agriculture Breakthrough:
Putting the Breakthrough Report recommendations into action
In November 2021, during COP26 in Glasgow under the United Kingdom Presidency, world leaders launched the Breakthrough Agenda. The Breakthrough Agenda commits countries to work together to make clean technologies and sustainable solutions the most affordable, accessible, and attractive option in high-emitting sectors globally before 2030. One of the priority sectors of the Breakthrough Agenda is agriculture, focusing on “making climate-resilient, sustainable agriculture, the most attractive and widely adopted option for farmers everywhere by 2030”.
In September 2022, just before the final countdown to COP27 starts, the first Breakthrough Report was launched. The Breakthrough Report proposes sector-specific goals, metrics for assessing progress in the coming years and highlights enabling conditions for a breakthrough in each sector of the focus sectors, as well as priorities for internal collaboration. This session will dive deeper into the recommendations for the Agriculture Breakthrough on R&D investment priorities, climate finance, policy action and other public sector-led interventions in the agriculture sector, and the metrics and indicators needed to track progress globally on the adoption of climate-resilient, sustainable forms of agriculture. We’ll focus on the next steps for putting those recommendation into action towards COP28 under strong UK leadership.
