COP28: Pathways to Financing, Scaling and Accelerating NDC Ambitions in Energy and Food Systems Transformation
Co-organized by: SNV, Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Global Alliance for the Future of Food (GAFF), Dutch Entrepreneurial Development Bank (FMO), Rabobank, African Group of Negotiators Experts Support (AGNES)
While it's clear from recent NDC reports on the urgency and importance of making our energy and food systems climate resilient, the pathway to financing, scaling and accelerating the transformation is not. This event will highlight two keynote speakers to present philanthropic and financing initiatives at the forefront of mobilizing investments for fossil-free, regenerative food systems and reducing food loss & waste that work for people and the planet. GAFF will share highlights from a new report, which maps how food and energy systems are intertwined, quantifies the fossil fuel dependency of food systems, and explains why these two systems are crucial to keeping global warming below 1.5C. FMO will underscore the Paris Agreement and food security connection, and share methodologies & current practices including the use of biowaste for energy generation to reduce food waste and reduce fossil fuel dependency. A high-level mixed panel of governments, commercial and equity banks, policymakers and agri-business representatives will discuss some recommendations and advocate for policymakers and funders to collaborate more effectively across food and energy issues. Special attention will be given to farmer-centric and inclusive approaches to regenerative food systems via a nexus approach that integrates the productive use of renewable energy.
