About GLF Nairobi 2023: ‘A new Vision for Earth’
The GLF Nairobi 2023 Hybrid Conference, held on October 11 and 12, convened global thought leaders to set the stage for COP28, the upcoming UN Climate Change Conference. This pivotal event mobilised action on critical issues affecting humanity, biodiversity, and our planet.
The conference featured two focused days: Day 1 centered on “Africa’s Sovereign Solutions,” exploring pathways to a sustainable and prosperous future for the continent. Day 2, dedicated to climate, aimed to craft a “Survival Guide for a Planet in Crisis,” paving the way for a fairer world ahead of COP28.
GLF Nairobi brought together a diverse coalition of influential voices, ranging from scientists, activists, and Indigenous leaders to financiers, women, youth, policymakers, and private sector representatives. As a united front, we collectively championed change and passionately advocated for meaningful action in these pivotal times.
About this session
Agroecology is increasingly recognized as a path towards sustainable food systems. However, many countries still lack coherent national policy frameworks to adopt it. This session examines how national agroecological strategies (NAS) can build more sustainable food systems through interventions around production practices, natural resource use and governance, markets, consumption patterns, and research agendas.
The session showcases the experiences of policymakers from across Africa on the processes undertaken to develop NAS, while nurturing an open discussion among participants on agroecological policy interventions.
