The science is clear: the agri-food sector has a critical role to play in tackling climate change. Mitigating the roughly one-third of global GHG emissions attributable to the food system requires action across the entire agri-food value chain, so that producers – and the industries and communities that they feed – can adopt regenerative practices at scale.
This session, led by The Nature Conservancy and its Canadian affiliate Nature United, will explore how collective action is catalyzing change toward net zero across whole industries and regions. Cases from China, Canada and the Latin America region, will highlight multi-stakeholder initiatives and frameworks such as Innovative Finance for Amazon Cerrado and Chaco (IFACC), public-private partnerships for net zero agriculture in Canada, and an effort to drive deep decarbonization in China’s rapidly growing dairy sector.
Through these case studies, speakers will explore corporate partnerships and financial solutions for sustainable cattle and soy production in Latin America; linking corporative leadership with government ambition for Net Zero agriculture in Canada; and China’s role, as the world's largest importer of agricultural commodities, in the future of meeting food security and climate goals while ensuring a vibrant and productive food economy.
Along the way, we will explore barriers to implementing natural climate solutions in agriculture and demonstrate how to reduce emissions by coordinating actors and actions throughout value chains.
This event aims to bring together numerous corporate, government and NGO groups from around the world to showcase how to mobilize change through pre-competitive value chain collaboration, finance solutions and government intervention. Attendees will leave the session with a deeper knowledge of how we can achieve net-zero food systems, with a clear connection for what this means at COP28 in Dubai.
