Agriculture and Climate Change: Post-Durban issues for negotiators
The inclusion of text on agriculture in the Outcome of the Work of the Ad Hoc Working Group on Long-term Cooperative Action under the Convention (AWG-LCA) was an important outcome of the COP 17 in December 2011.
This is the first time that agriculture has been "officially" recognized by the UNFCCC.
As part of IISD's Food Security and Climate Change Initiative, this paper examines the implications of the Durban Outcomes, and reviews party submissions on agriculture to the secretariat for consideration by SBSTA. It concludes by presenting critical issues that will need to be considered by negotiators in shaping a post-Durban programme of work on agriculture.
