Agriculture and displacement: PHB at UN Climate Conference

PHB is taking part in COP24 in Katowice, Poland, to highlight initiatives to support the adaptation of agriculture and financial inclusion for displaced persons. Dialogue at this year’s UN Climate Conference has focused more on working together for adaptation so that communities can be more resilient while working on the entire climate change issue.

Side events at the COP around the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have included addressing needs of the displaced, food security and agriculture, peacebuilding, gender inclusion, renewable energy and much more. PHB has been represented during the second week of these events to explore areas of potential cooperation in working toward the SDGs, especially in developing countries of Africa and Asia.

COP24 will run through Friday 14 December, as negotiators from some 190 countries seek agreement on guidelines for implementing the Paris Agreement. Get in touch with PHB to find out more about how we are working on future-focused programs in agriculture value chains and financial inclusion for displaced and host communities. Cooperation is the key to sustainable and stable societies.
