COP26 in Glasgow, Scotland
From 31 October to 12 November, the UN’s climate change conference (UNFCCC COP26) will take place in Glasgow, Scotland in partnership with Italy.
COP26 was originally scheduled in November 2020, but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), our current food system is responsible for 21-37% of global emissions and is far from sustainable. To meet the Paris climate targets, all sectors, including food and agriculture, must drastically reduce their emissions. We will closely follow the developments and continue to stress the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the agriculture sector through practices that also deliver benefits for adaptation and biodiversity and make our agricultural systems more resilient.
