[COP23 Side event] Agro-ecology challenges due to Climate Change
In the first day of the COP23 a group of development, church-based organisations (Caritas France, CIDSE and Bread for the World, Bread for all, both members of ACT Alliance) joined forces with the global peasant movement "La Via Campesina" for two side-events on the topic of agroecology.
The panellists were invited to share their testimonies of agroecology from their different regions and daily realities. "It was crucial for us to raise the voices of those who are the primary victims of climate change. Many times they are the ones who provide solutions to reduce greenhouse gases related to the global food system as well as provide healthy soils that can act as a carbon storage", said Julia Jawtusch from Bread for all, one of the ACT members who organised the event.
