The Koronivia joint work on agriculture and the convention bodies: an overview

Guideline

This review aims to provide countries and other stakeholders with relevant background and knowledge related to the Koronivia Joint Work on Agriculture (KJWA) decision. It introduces the KJWA decision and further developments resulting from the 48th sessions of the subsidiary bodies of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), provides a brief overview of the UNFCCC, and describes how the Convention addresses agriculture. It then looks at the subsidiary bodies and the seven constituted bodies under the Convention: the Consultative Group of Experts on National Communications from Parties not included in Annex I to the Convention, the Least Developed Countries Expert Group, the Technology Executive Committee, the Climate Technology Centre and Network, the Adaptation Committee, the Standing Committee on Finance, and the Paris Committee on Capacity Building. Looking at their respective mandate and previous agriculture-related work, this document outlines that each of the Convention bodies has directly or indirectly worked on issues related to agriculture in the past, and could build on this experience to contribute to the implementation of the KJWA.
