During the high-level plenary session of the UN climate talks in Poland, COP24, NFU climate change adviser Dr Ceris Jones was invited to present the Farmers Constituency statement on behalf of the World Farmers Organisation and hundreds of millions of farmers across the world.

The ‘High Level Segment’ sees Ministers and Heads of State delivering their national statements, on their policies and ambition to tackle climate change and to prepare for its impacts. This part of the climate talks also offers non-governmental organisations – such as research bodies, trades unions, environmental organisations and farmers – a platform to have their say. 

Listen to Ceris speaking about the key asks of farmers worldwide: innovation and technology transfer, and research and extension services, to boost productivity and resilience in support of world food security.
