Climate change is already affecting crop production, and in some cases is undermining the viability of current crop systems. The paper explains why transformative adaptation is needed in cropping systems, how seeds systems play a key role in these systemic shifts, and what changes are needed in crop research and development to enable climate-resilient transformations.

As climate change increasingly affects agriculture around the world, reliable, timely, and targeted information about weather and climate conditions is becoming an ever more urgent requirement for adaptation decision-making. This paper considers how transformative adaptation – long-term, systemic change to fundamental aspects of systems in response to or anticipation of severe climate change impacts - could be accelerated by enhancing climate services and how they are applied.

This paper establishes the collective baseline of Cool Food members’ food purchases and associated GHG emissions, as well as their shared 25 percent GHG emissions reduction target. If members met the target, their actions would reduce emissions by more than 1,071,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent per year by 2030 relative to the baseline, equivalent to avoiding the annual tailpipe emissions from more than 230,000 passenger vehicles.

New analysis commissioned by the High Level Panel for a Sustainable Ocean Economy shows that every $1 invested in sustainable ocean solutions yields at least $5 in return. A sustainable ocean economy can help the world build back better in the wake of COVID-19, improve ocean health and benefit the more than 3 billion people who rely on the ocean.

The fragility of the food system and its impact on food supply is already being significantly disrupted due to measures put in place to control the spread of COVID-19. The number of people suffering from chronic hunger could rise dramatically. Getting the food system right is central to a resilient recovery across the world, creating the potential for millions of new jobs, less hunger, greater food security and better management of key natural resources like soil, water, forests and the ocean.
