The Agriculture Innovation Mission (AIM) for Climate is an initiative of the United States and the United Arab Emirates that seeks to address climate change and global hunger by promoting increased investment in support of climate-smart agriculture and innovation. AIM for Climate aims to promote its climate objectives at the 27th UN Climate Change Conference (COP27) hosted in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt. COP27 is a gathering of world leaders committed to act against climate change by addressing key issues and policies.
The event will explore perspectives on the potential for innovation to achieve climate-smart agriculture, spanning gene technologies, resilient seeds, improved soil fertility, and knowledge transfer with a focus on legumes and cereals, particularly in the context of smallholder farmers in sub-Saharan Africa. A Q&A session will be open to participants. The panel will conclude with recommendations to achieve productive and sustainable food systems.
