Agricultural Solutions to Mega Global Challenges
On June 9th I had the great pleasure of taking part in the webinar "Agricultural Solutions to Mega Global Challenges " presented by the North America Climate Smart Agricultural Alliance (NACSAA) and Solutions from the Land.
Speaking alongside H.E. U.S. Ambassador Kip Tom, Ms. Ana Unruh Cohen of the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis, and and Mr. Fred Yoder of NACSAA, we were able to discuss the global and national innovation and policy pathways that will enable farmers, ranchers and foresters to adopt climate smart ag systems that deliver solutions to the co-joined mega challenges of the day: climate change, food security, ecosystems services and public health.
Speaking on behalf of the International Agri-Food Network I was able to echo Ambassador Tom's remarks on the importance of the United Nations and their processes as well as explain how private sector members can be part of the solution to mega challenges. There are multiple opportunities coming up in which farmers voice and private sector members will be able to have their voice heard. This includes CFS47 and the 2021 World Food Systems Summit.
