Making agriculture more “climate compatible”

Irregular weather conditions such as frequent drought in Africa’s Sahel region and extreme flooding in Myanmar, are having an impact on food systems and affecting millions of people worldwide.

For this reason, agriculture must be part of the climate talks currently underway in Paris, according to Dr David Nabarro, the newly appointed Special Advisor to the UN Secretary-General on the 2030 Agenda.

Dr Nabarro has also served as a UN envoy on food security and he is in Paris to push for making agriculture more “climate compatible.”
