The Koronivia Joint Work on Agriculture (4/CP.23) is a landmark decision adopted by the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) at its 23rd session. Referring to this decision as well as building on the previous informal dialogues in issues relating to agriculture held throughout 2016 and 2017 organized by the World Bank, FAO and Oxford Climate Policy, FAO organized an informal ‘Koronivia Dialogue’ for agriculture negotiators and country representatives on 8-9th March 2018.

The Dialogue was attended by 48 participants, from developed and developing countries, organisations, permanent missions and the UNFCCC Secretariat and structured into two parallel sessions – ‘Negotiator Seminar’ and ‘Country Action Seminar’.

The Regional Strategy for Disaster Risk Management (DRM) in the Agriculture Sector and Food and Nutrition Security (FNS) in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) was developed under the leadership of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC), which identified the need for a common tool to foster the collaboration and coordination among its member states with regards to DRM and Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) in the agriculture sector.

Moreover, the Strategy seeks to contribute to the CELAC Plan for Food and Nutrition Security and the Eradication of Hunger 2025 (FNS-CELAC Plan) which considers in its fourth pillar the stable production and timely attention to disasters of socio-natural origin that may affect the availability of food; and to the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030.

Migration is a growing and complex global phenomenon. The links between migration, agriculture and climate change are complex.
