Climate change

Climate change has strongly and directly affected the daily lives of farmers in the global South. The fight against climate change is now one of the main clear priorities for collective action on an international level. The Paris Agreement, which came into effect in N ovember 2016, committed almost every country worldwide to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to climate change. The world's main donors are also working alongside countries in the global South in the fight against climate change.
