Land, Food and Climate: African solutions for food and climate resilience

Digital Room 1

Large parts of Africa are facing a monumental food crisis, with some 22 million people are at risk of starvation in the drought-hit Horn of Africa alone. In this plenary, we will examine pathways to build the continent’s food and climate resilience and secure a just transition to a decarbonized economy, particularly nature-based solutions such as the restoration of forests and other ecosystems. We will also explore some key tools to power this transition, including financing for farmers, capacity building, community mobilization, and new narratives around African food sovereignty.
