Untapped Opportunities for Climate Action: An Assessment of Food Systems in Nationally Determined Contributions

Untapped Opportunities for Climate Action: An Assessment of Food Systems in Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) presents the main findings of an analysis of how 14 countries have incorporated food systems into their NDCs, with recommendations for action. Food systems not only contribute to and are significantly affected by climate change, but they are also a crucial part of the solutions urgently needed to keep global warming below 1.5°C (2.7°F) by 2050.

Part of a suite of materials, this summary report is designed to inform policy development and implementation, advocacy strategies, and key messages of influential state and non-state climate actors and highlights the many opportunities for governments to use food systems transformation to drive significant greenhouse gas emissions reductions, as well as other health, environmental, and social benefits.

Translated versions of the report are available in Deutsche, Español, Français and 中文.
