Linking nationally determined contributions and the sustainable development goals through agriculturePDF
This paper identifies potential “climate action-sustainable development pathways” spanning 17 major agricultural climate action categories and the 17 SDG targets. The aim of this mapping exercise is to explore the extent to which the two agendas are aligned for the prioritization of those climate...
Priorities related to food value chains and the agri-food sector in the nationally determined contributions (NDCs)PDF
This paper presents a global assessment on how food value chains and the agri-food sector have been considered in the nationally determined contributions (NDCs). Building on FAO’s global study of the agriculture sectors in the NDCs, the analysis provides an overview of where value chain...
