Agriculture and Rural Development Day at COP15

With the theme The road after Copenhagen: priority strategies and actions for ensuring food security and rural development in the face of climate change, the Agriculture and Rural Development Day will bring together policy makers and negotiators, rural development practitioners, producers, civil society and the agricultural and climate change scientific community to highlight the importance of agriculture in climate change and to identify the ‘no-regret’ priorities for agriculture and food security where the world needs to take action. The overall goal of the event is to develop a work plan with strategies and actions to fully incorporate agriculture into the post-Copenhagen agenda. The event will consider, among others, areas such as:
1. the role of agriculture and farmers, both women and men, in adaptation and mitigation strategies;
2. future scenarios for agriculture, rural development and food security; 3. climate change as a development issue; and
4. innovations in the agricultural sector of relevance to the climate change agenda.
