This event will bring governments, policymakers and farmers together. They will showcase actions and ambition to accelerate transition to sustainable agriculture - through redirecting policies and support as well as scaling innovation, to deliver healthy diets, resilient livelihoods and economies, whilst protecting nature and keeping to within 1.5°C of global warming.

The event is aligned with the COP26 Sustainable Agriculture Campaign and closely linked to the Forests, Agriculture Commodities and Trade Dialogue. It will showcase political ambition and bring together commitments made by lead countries and wider stakeholders throughout the Policy Dialogue process and the Global Action Agenda for Innovation in Agriculture. It will provide important space for stakeholders across the sector to come together to agree further action at COP26 and beyond.

The Global Action Agenda for Innovation in Agriculture (GAA) will set out the vision, objectives and a set of joint research priorities to drive coordination and accelerate agriculture innovation for people, nature and climate, whilst the Policy Action Agenda will set out steps which countries and actors can take to mobilise action towards repurposing of policies and public support.

The event will amplify multi-stakeholder voices and mobilise actors at and beyond COP26 on the policy and innovation changes needed to transform food systems for people, nature and climate, illustrating both a focus on nature and climate and resilient productive sectors and livelihoods, particularly in LMICs.
