IFAD at COP26 - UN Climate Change Conference
01 - 12 November 2021
The UN Climate Change Conference, which will feature the 26th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP26) to the UNFCCC and meetings of the UNFCCC subsidiary bodies, will take place from 1–12 November 2021.
The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) represents the international response to climate change. It is a treaty that sets out the basic responsibilities of the 196 Parties (States), plus the European Union, in taking climate action.
IFAD will be promoting the role of small-scale producers in climate change adaptation and mitigation and creating resilient food systems. Small-scale producers must be at the centre of climate change discussions as they are greatly underserved by climate finance. Bringing rural small-scale producers out of poverty and food insecurity will make positive, cascading contributions to meeting both the humanitarian and environmental goals of the 2030 Agenda.
