The COP21 side event From farmers' fields to landscapes: food security in a new climate regime? explores how addressing agriculture and its connection with global warming is critical if real inroads are to be made against poverty and hunger. Organised as part of the Global Landscapes Forum, widely considered to be the world's leading platform for discussing land-use issues, the event seeks to move agriculture further up the climate change agenda. It is expected to bring together representatives from agriculture, forestry, water and energy, law and finance to debate how to leverage a historic opportunity for shaping the world's development agenda in decades to come.
Sessions at the meeting will focus on strategies for ensuring food security under climate change through policies, integrated land use, new technologies and practices, and the importance of empowering women and youth to ensure inclusion.
