Climate Action in Agriculture Policy Around the World
Around the world, countries are pledging significant funding to tackle greenhouse gas emissions and build resilience through more sustainable agriculture systems.
Many countries that were already rolling out sustainable agriculture policies pre-pandemic have doubled down on these investments, acknowledging that supporting farmers to tackle the climate crisis while producing good food is a critical part of "building back better." Others have announced new roadmaps in recent months.
The countries that are most advanced in climate policy in agriculture now have clear targets, comprehensive strategies, and recognize that climate-friendly agriculture can be a pillar for both economic recovery and for addressing the climate and biodiversity crises.
