Brussels Briefing 56: “The Land-water-energy nexus and the sustainability of the food system”

Brussels, Belgium

Wednesday 3 July 2019

The Brussels Briefing 56 discusses the Land-Water-Energy nexus and its implications for the food system, with a focus on ACP countries. 

Delivering water, energy and food for all in a sustainable and equitable way is a major challenge faced by many countries. The interactions between water, energy and food in a nexus approach are crucial for the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and key to fight poverty, protect the environment and ensure a sustainable agricultural growth.

National workshop: Climate finance for agriculture in Guyana

Georgetown, Guyana

Wednesday 3 July - Thursday 4 July 2019

Agriculture is central to any debate on climate change given the enormous responsibility placed on the sector to produce 60% more food by 2050 despite changing climatic uncertainties. The case for increased investment in climate-smart agriculture has been articulated in different forums as a way to promote agricultural transformation and chart a path to scale up climate actions in agriculture.

However, it is noted that the amount of climate finance going into the agricultural sector is very small compared with other sectors and, in contrast to what has been clearly identified in the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). Less than 5% of global climate finance is targeted to the agricultural sector and, even much less to smallholder farmers.
