Support to UNFCCC process
The architecture for a global climate change regime will form part of an agreement to be decided in Copenhagen in December 2009. This regime will regulate global climate change adaptation and mitigation efforts by the international community and provide the parameters and broader framework for nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs) and national adaptation plans of action (NAPAs). FAO provides advocacy and support to the climate change negotiations.
FAO provides assistance to the negotiations and to individual delegations upon request on issues relating to mitigation from agriculture and on reducing emissions from forest degradation and deforestation (REDD), as well as their financing. FAO also supports adaptation activities and the Nairobi work programme. Specific activities include policy briefs, workshops, submissions and side-events.
