FAO acts as a neutral forum, where all nations meet as equals to debate, negotiate agreements and strengthen global, regional and national climate and energy policy and governance.
Climate policy includes policies to mitigate climate change (reducing greenhouse gas emissions and removing greenhouse gases from the atmosphere, so that the climate does not change as much or as quickly); and to adapt to climate change (helping communities and businesses to build resilience and avoid the worst effects of warmer temperatures, extreme weather, and other impacts).
FAO works to ensure that energy policies are climate-friendly and focused on increasing the efficiency of energy use; increasing the sustainable production and use of renewable energy; and encouraging research into and the development of innovative energy technology.
