Climate change is imposing substantial pressures and risks on the foundational agri-food
and water systems essential for human well-being. Simultaneously, these systems significantly
contribute to climate change, with one-third of all human-made greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions originating from agri-food systems, and 70% of global freshwater consumption dedicated to
agricultural production. The specific priorities in the realm of food and agriculture encompass
strategic investments in innovation, the promotion of regenerative agriculture practices, and the formulation of national transformation pathways.

These endeavors are underscored by robust financing mechanisms and project preparation.
Additionally, the water-focused initiatives will address freshwater restoration and
conservation, the development of infrastructure for urban water resilience, and the
implementation of integrated governance and management strategies for water-food systems.
