2023 Borlaug Dialogue Side Event: Climate Action for resilient food system transformation – insights from Asia and Latin America and the Caribbean
- Impact Area
Climate change poses serious challenges for food systems around the world. Over the coming decades they must produce more food to sustain the growing global population—while reducing carbon emissions and becoming more resilient to climate impacts such as extreme weather events and increased droughts. What are the most effective ways to bring about this food systems transformation at the regional, national, and local levels?
This was the theme of an October 18 virtual side event at the Norman E. Borlaug International Dialogue, Climate Action for Resilient Food System Transformation—Policy and Institutional Insights from Asia and Latin America and the Caribbean. The event, co-organized by IFPRI, the Interamerican Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA), and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), brought together researchers, policymakers, and practitioners to share insights about opportunities to harness technological innovations and institutional mechanisms for climate actions resulting in inclusive, climate resilient, and sustainable food systems.
