COP27: Transitioning Agriculture systems for sustainability and climate resilience
Venue COP27, Akhenaten (150), Zone C, Side Events 2 Building
Date 14 Nov 2022
Start time 18:30

The transformation of agriculture systems to reduce emissions feed a growing population in a warming planet is a challenge identified by the IPCC and others. A Just Protein Transition to plant-based proteins and agroecological farming are increasingly recognised as solutions. Event start at 18h30 local time / 17h30 CET.

Climate action in agriculture is essential for food security
Publication date 27 Oct 2022

Feeding the world while staying within planetary boundaries and keeping global warming within 1.5°C is a growing challenge where development finance institutions have a key role to play. Far from a contradiction, climate action in agriculture is essential to reaching development goals.

Ambitious GHG mitigation in the agricultural sector

This project explores the options, solutions and barriers that are faced by ambitious climate action in mitigating GHG emissions for the agricultural sector, which includes detailed analysis of 10 countries.

What’s at stake for steak?
Publication date 11 Jul 2022

The meat industry is a major, and growing, contributor to global greenhouse gas emissions. Aggregate emissions from animal-based foods are twice those of plant-based products, accounting for in the order of 60% of total food system emissions.

Landscape for mitigation action and finance in Georgia’s agriculture sector
Publication date 01 Apr 2022

This report presents a comprehensive mapping of mitigation options available in the subsector, mitigation potential, abatement costs, key barriers of uptake, financing options, and applicability to the Georgian context.

Transition risks, mitigation options, and the global protein transformation in the context of Argentina’s agriculture sector
Publication date 22 Mar 2022

Identifies transition risks faced by Argentina’s export-oriented agriculture industry, evaluates emissions reduction options in livestock and cropping systems, and explores economic opportunities with the protein transition.

CLIMTRADE - Impacts of climate regulation on trade
Publication date 05 Nov 2021

The CLIMTRADE tool allows users to analyse a range of economic impacts associated with carbon border adjustments.

Aligning agribusiness and the broader food system with the Paris Agreement
Publication date 29 Jun 2021

Achieving the mitigation goals of the Paris Agreement calls for a shift in where and how our food is produced, processed and transported to consumers. At the same time, this shift needs reinforcing with changes in our eating habits and how much food we waste. Development finance has the potential to play an important role in bringing about this change. Main findings: Drawing on sectoral benchmarks for shifts in the food system, we propose a rating system to guide investment decision making by dividing agribusinesses into four categories according to their consistency with mitigation objectives...

A review of successful climate change mitigation policies in major emitting economies and the potential of global replication
Publication date 08 Jan 2021

This scientific article in ‘Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews’ looks at climate change mitigation policies in five major emitting economies: China, the European Union, India, Japan and the United States. It analyses their performance in terms of energy system and greenhouse gas emissions indicators. The review centres on the sectors of electricity generation, passenger vehicles, freight transport, forestry, industry, buildings, agriculture, and oil and gas production. The article further presents an explorative emissions scenario developed under the assumption that all countries will...

What's on the table? Mitigating agricultural emissions while achieving food security
Publication date 24 Jan 2018

A new analysis of agricultural emissions by the Climate Action Tracker shows that reducing emissions through changes in farming practices alone will not be enough to limit global warming to 1.5°C, but changing our diets and reducing food waste could make significant additional reductions, which calls for a much more holistic approach. Key messages : Mitigating emissions from agriculture is key to achieve deep cuts in emissions in line with the Paris Agreement’s long- term goal of “net-zero” Options for emission reductions on the supply side include efficiency improvements, take-up of best...
