Location: Glasgow

The UN Climate Change Conference (COP 26), hosted by the UK in partnership with Italy takes place from 31 October to 12 November 2021 in the Scottish city of Glasgow.

The aim of this year’s conference is to finalize remaining decisions to ensure the full implementation of the Paris Agreemen. FAO is present to reinforce its commitment to supporting countries in the climate negotiations, particularly through the implementation of the Koronivia Joint Work on Agriculture, by scaling up Nationally Determined Contribution commitments, enhancing action related to food and agriculture, ecosystems and biodiversity, and working with countries to access climate finance.

FAO will continue to advocate for and promote sustainable, efficient and resilient agri-food systems as part of the solution to the climate crisis, biodiversity loss and ecosystem degradation.
