CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS)– Started streaming 65 minutes ago
Register here to ask questions: https://bit.ly/AchieveNDCs As countries continue to submit new or updated NDCs to the UNFCCC for the Paris Agreement, the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS), UN Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), and the World Resources Institute (WRI) are conducting a detailed analysis of agriculture sub-sector targets in the NDCs.
The analyses examined progress since the first NDCs, level of ambition, a comparison of ambition and emissions reduction potentials from the sub-sectors, support for implementation in domestic policies, and investment needs. These analyses can enhance the clarity, transparency and understanding of NDCs to support their progress by identifying gaps in mitigation targets, finance needs and policy. The purpose of these analyses and this event is to improve knowledge on agriculture sub-sector targets, measures, policies and finance in the NDCs and support prioritization and informed decisions in the agriculture sector for significant mitigation outcomes and impacts. In this webinar, CCAFS, FAO, WRI and partners will Discuss the ambition of current NDCs’ commitments for agriculture; Share methods and tools for analysis of NDCs; and Highlight actions to achieve NDCs’ targets.
The speakers will report on the mitigation targets and adaptation actions, policies, plans and strategies for agriculture, with in-depth analysis for agricultural sub-sectors for soil, livestock and rice. Panelists will tackle questions related to ambitious action and implementation of the NDCs.
