The aim of this year’s conference is to finalize remaining decisions to ensure the full implementation of the Paris Agreement, 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 in supporting countries to access climate finance.
