Following the COP26 summit to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), this virtual event served as an opportunity to underscore the inextricable link between climate and food, building on the outcome of both the UN Food Systems Summit (UNFSS) and COP26, and looking into the next year’s COP27.

Invited speakers discussed the main outcomes of the COP26 and their implications to food systems transformation and try to identify policy and institutional entry points where the Climate Convention can support transformations for more sustainable food systems and vice-versa. Furthermore, they explored how to mainstream food systems issues into national UNFCCC instruments such as the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and National Adaptation Plans (NAPs), building on its existing mechanisms and processes.
