A unique opportunity for food sustainability NGOs and companies to get involved on the ground at COP28 in Dubai
Civil society organisations and companies seeking to connect with global sustainability leaders have the opportunity to be present on the ground at this year’s COP28 climate summit by partnering with food awareness organisation, ProVeg International.
COP28 will see leaders from nearly 200 countries gather to help advance efforts to tackle climate change and environmental degradation and ProVeg will be uniquely positioned to help organisations connect and problem-solve with those leaders at the hotly anticipated event.
Taking place from 30 November to 12 December this year, ProVeg will be hosting delegates at its Pavilion which focuses on how transitioning to plant-rich diets can play a huge role in tackling climate change.
The Pavilion will serve as a space to host events, as well as provide a showcase for expert discussions and facilitate engagement with a diverse group of COP stakeholders on topics such as agricultural climate mitigation and adaptation solutions.
The benefits of being a partner
Pavilion partners will benefit from increased recognition and visibility during COP28 – both offsite and onsite – and will have opportunities to speak about food system transformation and the climate impact of our diet.
“Partners are also invited to provide input on events and discussions that could be included in the Pavilion programme,” Juliette Tronchon, Senior Policy and Public Affairs Specialist at ProVeg said.
“Depending on your organisation’s desired level of involvement, there are plenty of other opportunities you might consider as well,” Tronchon said.
The launch of the Pavilion at COP27 last year, alongside other food system Pavilions, was groundbreaking because it signified recognition at UN-level of the relationship between climate change and food production.
ProVeg International is gearing up to build on the success of last year’s Pavilion and further emphasise the need to make the shift towards plant-rich diets, adopt sustainable and resilient agricultural practices, and reduce food loss and waste.
A total of 15 partner organisations have already signed up to join ProVeg at its Pavilion, including: World Animal Protection, A Well-Fed World, Humane Society International, the Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation, Four Paws, Food Tank, Mercy For Animals, the Jeremy Coller Foundation, Compassion in World Farming, Upfield, Impossible Foods, the MENA Youth Network, Young Professionals for Agricultural Development, the International Association of Students in Agricultural and Related Sciences, and the YOUNGO Food and Agriculture Working Group.
