In the run-up to the 48th session of the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI 48) and the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA 48) of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change in Bonn (30 April – 10 May 2018), FAO developed a draft summary of submissions by Parties under the historic “Koronivia joint work on agriculture” (Decision 4/CP.23), the landmark agreement adopted at COP23 for the agriculture negotiations under the climate convention which emphasizes the key role of agriculture and food security in the international climate change agenda.

This work is the outcome of a collaboration between FAO’s Technical Network on Climate Change and the CMCC Foundation – Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change (CMCC).

This summary aims to make the wide range of views submitted more easily accessible to all interested – in particular, Parties and observers to the UNFCCC. The ultimate aim is to support efforts to identify a joint way forward for climate action in the agricultural sectors.
