Climate Change

Thematic Working Group on agriculture, food security and land use

The Thematic Working Group (TWG) on Agriculture, Food Security and Land Use under the NDC Partnership (NDC-P) is a country-led peer to peer network for countries and international organizations to consult one another and to share experiences and challenges related to climate change impacts and the implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions in the agriculture sectors.

The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations is facilitating the TWG together with two co-chairs, which are currently Australia and Uruguay, and in close collaboration with the Support Unit of the NDC-P.
