Abstract

To meet mitigation and adaptation goals, international climate negotiations must include agriculture. In the lead up to Copenhagen, negotiators will meet next in Bonn in early June. Panelists will discuss the challenges and opportunities for integrating agriculture into the climate change negotiations.

IFPRI’s 2020 Vision Initiative approached leading experts around the world to share their perspectives on the key negotiating outcomes that must be pursued now to effectively put agriculture on the climate change agenda. Advance copies of the resulting collection of briefs will be available at the event.
