New FAO Strategy on Climate Change

The FAO Council endorsed the new FAO Strategy on Climate Change 2022-2031 on 14 June 2022.

The strategy will drive the implementation of FAO’s Strategic Framework 2022-31, and guide FAO in providing strengthened support to Members in their ambitions to address climate change in agrifood systems, and in the implementation of the Paris Agreement.

The strategy aims to address a broad range of interlinked challenges, including the loss of biodiversity, desertification, land and environmental degradation, the need for accessible, renewable energy, and food and water security.

It is organized under three Pillars: 

  1. Global and regional levels (strengthening global and regional climate policy and governance;
  2. Country level (developing countries’ capacities for climate action);
  3. Local level (scaling up climate action on the ground). 

Its guiding principles include empowering and engaging farmers, livestock keepers, fishers, aquaculturists, Indigenous Peoples and forest-dependent people, embracing both traditional good practices and innovations, and building on science-based evidence.
