Together with Rothamsted Research, the Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations (IDDRI) coordinates an international Initiative that focuses on developing, adapting and applying practical toolkits for countries to build national pathways that could help them meet the targets of high priority for the future transformation and development of their agriculture and food sector.
The primary outcomes this Initiative will achieve will be:
- A comprehensive understanding of transformation pathways, supporting national debates;
- An international learning platform;
- Concrete knowledge on how to deliver the SDGs.
Based on initial results from pilot countries, this session will aim to discuss the potential of such an approach to remove the main obstacles to the necessary transformations.
- Marie-Hélène Schwoob (CIRAD) will review the findings of the initiative over the past few months in pilot countries such as Uruguay, China and the United Kingdom. (24 slides)
- Étienne Hainzelin will focus particularly on agricultural transformation pathways in regions such as Africa. He has coordinated the book Cultivating biodiversity to transform agriculture (Springer Edition 2013).
This side event invites Parties and other stakeholders to share lessons learnt on innovative financial mechanisms and their role in sustainable financing strategies for protected areas at national and site-level. It will showcase practical examples and present highlights of a review of experiences from international cooperation (including French and German). IDDRI & France-IUCN Partnership and GIZ studies on Innovative Financial Mechanisms for long-term biodiversity conservation, including in Africa, will also be presented.
