The UN Foundation is delighted to invite you to a Big Tent Gathering on Climate & Food in 2024, scheduled for April 23 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. EDT.

Given the unprecedented emphasis on food and agriculture at COP 28 and the significance of the path forward, we aim to bring together a diverse array of climate and food/agriculture-focused groups and coalitions to deepen partnerships and collaboration. Building on an initial community gathering at COP 28, we will have an open conversation about the state of food and agriculture in the lead up to COP 29, share updates on ongoing initiatives, and explore opportunities for collaboration.

During the interactive meeting, experts and food systems leaders will guide us through the key moments and opportunities of 2024, to be followed by an open discussion.

Speakers include:

  • Martina Fleckenstein, World Wildlife Fund (WWF)• David Laborde, Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO)
  • Amanda McKee, NDC Partnership
  • David Nabarro, Skills Systems and Synergies for Sustainable Development (4SD)
  • Maria Netto, Instituto Clima e Sociedade (ICS)

Moderated by:
