They aim to accelerate action toward the goals laid out in the Paris Agreement and the United Nations (UN) Framework Convention on Climate Change. The priority is to create an action plan for achieving global net zero. Additionally, they are exploring ways to reform global trade in agricultural commodities, such as beef, soy and palm oil, so that sustainable production is rewarded. Identifying ways to help farmers make a better living, leaders must at the same time ensure protection of the planet’s forests, ecosystems and biodiversity.
