The industrial food system contributes over one third of global emissions. Without a fundamental restructuring of fossil fuel-dependent, global trade-based food systems, real climate resilience is unattainable. In this session, we will hear from grassroots advocates about how they advance agroecology with governments as a climate resilience strategy. Also from frontline advocacy networks about their experiences at the recent COP 27 climate deliberations in Egypt. What did they learn about how to focus attention on the nexus of food and climate and how does that experience inform future national and international advocacy strategies to connect agroecology and climate resilience? Please join global agroecology leaders for this timely discussion.
