CFS 42 Side event: How to reconcile climate change and food security?
13 October 2015, Rome--- A side event, "How to reconcile climate change and food security?", has been organized today by France, Morocco and FAO in the run up to the 2015 Paris Climate Conference COP 21, at the Organization’s headquarters in Rome. To set the scene in the run up to the 2015 Paris Climate Conference, the side event explained the threats and opportunities that climate change poses to agriculture and food security, and demonstrated the key role of agriculture, in terms of adaptation and mitigation. The particular nexus between food security, soils and climate change was also presented and concrete solutions that already exist in this field were laid out, such as the "4 pour 1000" initiative that aims to increase soil carbon sequestration in order to improve soil quality and fertility while absorbing and reducing the rate of carbon in the air.
