The importance of addressing agriculture and food systems to achieve SDG goals for 2030 was highlighted at COP28. 159 Heads of State and Government signed a declaration which was published during COP28 in December of 2023.

159 Heads of State and Governments signed a declaration at COP28 on the importance of addressing agriculture and food systems to achieve UN 2030 SDGs and the Paris Agreement and pledged to pursue five major goals. These include: 

  1. Scale-up adaptation and resilience
  2. Promote food security and nutrition
  3. Support diverse workers in agri-food sectors
  4. Strengthen water management within agriculture and the food system
