A New Era for Climate Change and Food Security?
Event Date: May 04, 2021
Time: 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM (GMT -4)
Online: Online Event
Host: FAO North America and the CSIS Global Food Security Program
Climate change threatens our ability to ensure global food security and eradicate poverty. At the same time, agriculture, including forestry, fisheries, and livestock production, generates around a fifth of the world's greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions—and food systems writ large are responsible for over one-third of GHG emissions worldwide. The global response to climate change today will determine how we feed future generations tomorrow. By transforming agriculture and food systems, countries have the chance to achieve food security for all.
FAO North America and the Global Food Security Program invite you to join a webinar that will bring together expert panelists to discuss changing perspectives on climate change and its impact on global food security, highlighting outcomes of President Biden’s Leaders Summit on Climate.
