Agriculture takes a leap forward at Bonn Climate Talks

The signature decision on agriculture coming out of this year's climate talks in Bonn, called the Koronivia Joint Work on Agriculture, provides a new opportunity to address how climate change impacts on agricultural production have put millions of lives and livelihoods at risk worldwide."This bold landmark decision brings agriculture to the forefront of the international climate change agenda, and looks directly at important issues such as assessing adaptation and mitigation benefits of agriculture, improving soil health, nutrient management and livestock systems, and addressing the socio-economic and food security issues associated with climate change in the agriculture sectors," said Julia Wolf, Natural Resource Officer and Coordinator from the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) for the joint UNDP-FAO Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans Programme (NAP-Ag).
