The 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27) discussions at
Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, highlighted the urgency to reduce greenhouse gas
emissions. Thus, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United
Nations (FAO) looked into its expertise and experience to initiate actions
on how agri-food systems could be modified and contribute towards climate
change mitigation.
According to Zitouni Ould-Dada, the deputy director of FAO's Climate and
Environment division, FAO was a part of four initiatives launched by the
Egyptian Presidency at COP27, which are as follows:
* Food and Agriculture Sustainable Transformation (FAST) aimed at
supporting climate action in agri-food systems;
* Initiative on Climate Action and Nutrition (I-CAN) to support member
states implement policies for improved access to nutritious and
healthy diets from sustainable food systems;
* Action for Water Adaptation and Resilience (AWARE) to address better
management of water for climate adaptation and resilience; and
* waste management in Africa to treat and recycle at least 50% of the
solid waste produced in Africa by 2050.
