Of significance this year at COP27 was a marked prevalence of agri-food systems transformation in events and climate strategies presented at all levels and across the board. Given that last year’s COP was the first time that agriculture was officially acknowledged and included in key pledges such as the methane pledge, this marks a significant pivot in climate change strategies, in which CGIAR can play a leading role through its research centers’ combined innovation, expertise, trusted networks, and research portfolio. Key also was the interest solicited for CGIAR’s agri-food systems innovations and technologies in bilateral meetings with government and private sector stakeholders throughout the conference.
