Taking Integrated Action on Climate and Nutrition

GAIN Executive Director and World Food Prize Laureate, Lawrence Haddad, will present the new report of the initiative on climate action and nutrition (I-CAN). The report analyses levels of climate-nutrition integration across policy, research and finance. The report was researched by GAIN and launched at the Committee for Food Security (CFS) in November 2023. It forms part of efforts at COP28 to focus more on how food systems and climate are interlinked. It aims to foster collaboration to accelerate transformative action to address the critical nexus of climate change and nutrition. I-CAN further aims to build a strong alliance across nutrition and climate communities, strengthen existing efforts and take action to address the gaps, and develop an evidence base of integrated nutrition and climate action.

Lawrence Haddad will introduce the I-CAN vision and objectives and share the reports main findings. For example, just 2% of NDCs have concrete plans to address nutrition and only 1% of climate-related ODA financing explicitly mentions nutrition. At the same time, 95% of Global Nutrition Report commitments do not consider climate or sustainability at all.

Rudaba Khondker, Country Director of GAIN in Bangladesh will dial in to present a concrete example on the co-benefits of integrated action and collaboration across environment and nutrition.

A case study from Bangladesh will complement the presentation with practical efforts to link climate and nutrition.
