COP27: Steering the green transition in agriculture and food production

Join us at COP27 at the Danish Pavilion: ‘Steering the green transition in agriculture and food production –  How innovative solutions can both ensure safe and nutritious food and be part of the solution to address the climate crisis’. At the side event, you will meet leading high-level profiles from the Danish and international agricultural and food scene. 

Climate change, climate variability, and extremes are affecting agricultural productivity, food production, and natural resources, with huge impacts on food systems – especially on the African continent.  

A transition to more sustainable food systems is needed to combat climate change effectively. The intersection between food systems and climate is clear, and there is a real need to connect the two. 

Therefore, we must ensure efficient and sustainable food production where everyone, everywhere has regular access to enough nutritious food.  

It is about joining forces enabling us to bring together the best of our joint expertise in supply chains and sustainable agriculture and deliver value to farmers, businesses, and the climate.  

The side event is part of the AIM for Climate Roadshow at COP27. It will showcase how climate-smart agriculture and innovative solutions can empower agriculture and food production to be part of the solution to address the climate crisis and at the same time ensure a safe, nutritious, and reliable supply of food for all.
