Climate actions in the agriculture sector are a priority for ASEAN member states (Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam). This has been highlighted through joint regional submissions to the SBSTA, as well as in member states’ INDCs.

This side event will:

  • Articulate regional and national priorities for climate action in the agricultural sector
  • Showcase regional and national level actions to address priorities, including through South-South cooperation mechanisms
  • Develop partnerships with relevant organizations and networks to further scale out climate actions in the region
