4. Implementing climate change action in agriculture through an integrated water-energy-food nexus approach

Date: Wednesday 31st May
Time: 14:00-16:00
Room: Elk

Countries have recognized the importance of agriculture, land use, and food security in most of the updated NDCs, and are now facing the challenge to implement transformative climate action addressing the complex nature of the global resource system. The water–energy–food-ecosystem nexus approach can support policy makers and practitioners to address such challenge and bring innovative solutions for sustainable agrifood systems transformation. This breakout session focuses on sectoral coordination within the water-energy-food-ecosystem nexus to discuss governance and policy alignment for the implementation of climate change action, including challenges and opportunities of integrated water-energy-food-ecosystem climate policies and programs.
