Money where it matters - 11 November - COP27 side-event

Join us on Friday, 11 Nov 2022 | 15:00—16:30 | in Room 4 (Khufu) for a side event on "Driving climate finance to achieve human and environmental rights" with AgriCord, FairTrade, NFU-UK, FFF, PAFO, AFA, SIDA, and IFAD. 

Food systems are increasingly called upon to enforce human and environmental rights. But what does this mean for farmers’ livelihoods? Accessing funding and innovative financial instruments for adaptation and mitigation are necessary to rapidly scale up food system transformation among small farmers.
