Koronivia Joint Work on Agriculture (KJWA) submission

Koronivia Joint Work on Agriculture (KJWA) submission
New views for consideration at upcoming workshops of the Koronivia Joint Work on Agriculture (KJWA) has been published by an important group of research and higher education institutions and programs. This submission stresses the important role of the research community in taking actions for climate change in agriculture.

KJWA has been a landmark decision on next steps for agriculture and climate change taken at the 23rd Conference of the Parties (COP) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in November 2017. Indeed, in its decision called 4/CP.23, the COP requested for the first time the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) and the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI) to work jointly to address issues relating to agriculture, including through workshops and expert meetings. SBI and SBSTA are requested to work with the constituted bodies under the Convention, and to take into consideration the vulnerabilities of agriculture to climate change and approaches to addressing food security.

Consequently and after consultations of observers and non-observers to the UNFCCC, a joint decision taken by the SBSTA and the SBI at their 48th session (FCCC/SB/2018/L1) developed an agenda for thematic workshops that will take place during joint SBSTA/SBI sessions between December 2018 and November 2020.

Another consultation as then been launched and a group of research and higher education institutions and programs, observers and non-observers to the UNFCCC submitted their views for the incoming workshop on 3rd December 2018 during the COP24 in Katowice, Poland. The submission published on 22 October stresses not only the important role of the scientific community in knowledge production in the area of agricultural and climate change but also its commitment to accompany the action.

The submission explains that the scientific community is already very active and organized in the area of agriculture, climate change, and food security. International scientific institutions, programs and initiatives like the UNCCD-SPI, the GRA, the CGIAR WLE and CCAFS, the 4 per 1000 initiative and European projects like CIRCASA or FACCE-JPI are some cited examples of the current scientific actions on food security and climate change adaptation and mitigation.

The submission is a clear proposal for integrating scientific and technical knowledge and expertise in the KJWA process in order to base action on adaptation to and mitigation of climate change in agriculture, as well as to strengthen food security. The participation of the scientific community to the KJWA could be by:

-         Producing and reviewing meta-analyses,

-         Proposing local case studies,

-         Producing recommendations or options for making progress,

-         Producing contextualized analysis to assist Parties to update their Nationally Determined Contributions by 2020.

In addition to structured dialogue between scientists and stakeholders, for instance, in the 4 per 1000 Initiative and CIRCASA, the submission is calling for a more structured and efficient interface between scientists and policymakers worldwide at country scale.
