High Level Ministerial Dialogue on Building Water-Resilient Food Systems

10 Dec

09:00-10:30 GST

Building on the COP28 Presidency's commitment to achieve net-zero, nature-positive, and resilient agrifood and water systems to support producing communities and consumers and the global momentum from the UN Food Systems Summit and the UN 2023 Water Conference, the United Arab Emirates and Brazil will co-host the UNFCCC COP process' first-ever ministerial dialogue on water-resilient food systems. The dialogue will bring together agriculture and water ministers, the private sector, and international organizations to showcase innovative policy, finance, technology, and research and development solutions addressing the interlinked food, water, and climate crises, as well as launch a two-year partnership under the UNFCCC's Climate-Resilient Food Systems (CRFS) Alliance that will support Parties and non-state actors ahead of COP30 to better integrate water and food systems management for both adaptation and mitigation in national climate plans.
