Koronivia Joint Work on Agriculture

Who’s involved?

The implementation and success of the KJWA depends on combined efforts from Subsidiary Bodies, Constituted Bodies as well as operating entities of the Financial Mechanism under the UNFCCC, Parties and observers, and other relevant stakeholders. Such a setup brings with it many opportunities, as it strengthens science-policy-practice linkages, with the potential to catalyze concrete action when it comes to addressing approaches to food security, the vulnerability of agriculture to climate change, and how to mitigate agriculture’s contribution to climate change.
