Saturday, 2023/12/09 | 13:01:51

FAO News, 04/12/2023

 

Dubai - FAO Director-General QU Dongyu led a delegation during the first high-level segment of the UN Climate Conference COP28 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, carrying the message of agrifood systems as the linchpin to climate solutions.

 

From addressing Heads of State and Government at the World Climate Action Summit to launching a new FAO report and signing three different new memorandums of understanding, QU Dongyu's resounding message echoed through various events, underlining the interwoven challenges of food security and climate change. His leadership unfolded through participation in diverse forums, each emphasizing a unique facet of the urgent agenda.

 

World Climate Action Summit: Leader’s event on food and agriculture

 

At COP28's World Climate Action Summit leader’s event on agriculture and food systems, FAO Director-General QU Dongyu advocated for global agrifood systems as essential for climate solutions, emphasizing their role in achieving Sustainable Development Goals and addressing food security challenges.



At the event, Qu expressed FAO’s support for the newly launched Emirates Declaration on Sustainable Agriculture, Resilient Food Systems, and Climate Action, already endorsed by over 130 countries. He said that the Emirates Declaration, guided by the new FAO Global Roadmap on achieving SDG2 without breaching the 1.5C° threshold, are key instruments for achieving the SDG targets under the Four Betters, leaving no one behind

 

FAO launches report on loss on damage: an increasing danger for agrifood systems

 

During a high-level event at the FAO and partners Food Pavilion, QU Dongyu unveiled a groundbreaking FAO report on loss and damage, coinciding with COP28's decision to operationalize the Loss and Damage Fund agreed to be created at COP27. He applauded the initial pledges being garnered by the fund and stressed the imperative to mobilize finance urgently, emphasizing the escalating threat of climate change-induced loss and damage to global agrifood systems.

 

First Global Stocktake: High-level event on adaptation

 

At the first high-level event with heads of State and Government on the Global Stocktake, FAO Director-General highlighted the crucial role of agrifood systems in climate change adaptation. Emphasizing the opportunities across crops, livestock, forestry, fisheries, and aquaculture, he stressed that sustainable practices could mitigate the impacts of extreme weather events, such as droughts and floods, while fostering resilience in agricultural communities.

 

Despite these benefits, he underscored that the share of climate-related development finance for agrifood systems has been declining, a trend that must be reversed.

 

Qu called for increased investment, partnerships, and capacity-building at global, national, and local levels, supporting initiatives like the COP27 Food and Agriculture for Sustainable Transformation Partnership (FAST) . FAO fully backs members in their ambitious climate objectives, aligning with their Nationally Determined Contributions and National Adaptation Plans, especially in vulnerable regions like Small Island Developing States and Least Developed Countries.
