The SCALA programme is organizing a semi-virtual side event at the Multilateral Development Banks Pavilion at COP26 in Glasgow on “Engaging the private sector to implement agriculture and land use priorities of nationally determined contributions (NDCs) and National Adaptation Plans (NAP)s”. This side event is organized by FAO and UNDPin partnership with the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD).
This panel, moderated by FAO’s Zitouni Ould Dada, will bring together private sector actors, government stakeholders and other practitioners working on adaptation and mitigation strategies. Among other things, participants will discuss the role of private sector engagement in accelerating climate action in the land use and agriculture sectors, unpack collective entry points for private sector actors to engage in NDC/NAP processes, and capture a range of experiences relating to climate action in the land use and agriculture sectors.
Maria Lettini, Executive Director, will participate in a panel discussion talking about the role of FAIRR in working with investors to make companies align with NDCs.
