Frontline food and farming experts on the ground at COP28

From 30 November to 12 December 2023, the Global Alliance will attend the 28th Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP28) in Dubai. We will be supporting a delegation of 42 frontline food systems representatives to COP28, including farmers, fishers, grassroots activists and NGO leaders from around the world; from smallholder farmers in Africa to indigenous food activists from North America, NGO leaders in South America to farming leaders from India – voices which are severely underrepresented on the international stage. 

We believe that true food systems transformation emerges when diverse actions, networks, and individuals collaborate and intersect across sectors and issue silos, the global and local, the macro and the micro. These representatives bring personal stories and real-world examples, showcasing both the hope and devastation as they innovate and adapt to a warming planet. 

The representatives are available for interviews — in-depth or fast-paced — panel events and content creation providing firsthand experiences of climate impact and pathways to transformative change.

Do not hesitate to contact the Global Alliance or Greenhouse Communications if one of our representatives can provide first-person experience of the impacts of climate change, the solutions they can offer and the urgent support that they need. For interviews and speaker requests, contact:
