Finally, in international forums, France is committed to ensuring that agriculture is recognized as an important sector offering solutions in terms of adaptation and resistance to climate change. B and climate change (for example, the “4 per 1000 initiatives”: soils for food security and climate). N2 – Climate change has a profound impact on agriculture and food security. At the same time, agriculture contributes significantly to climate change. Fortunately, there is also much to be gained, as the agricultural sector has significant potential to combat climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving security. There is therefore an urgent need for a policy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, participate in climate change and increase productivity. Strategies for climate-intelligence agriculture are proposed, but they are still underdeveloped. This article examines whether the 2015 Paris climate agreement leads to the development of such a policy. It notes that the Paris climate agreement unfortunately does not provide a strong incentive for the adoption and implementation of a smart agriculture climate policy. The Paris climate agreement does not change the awkward relationship between agricultural and climate policy that we have already experienced under the UNFCCC and the Kyoto Protocol.
Adaptation to climate change in rural areas of developing countries is certainly very good, but progress is painfully slow. For developed countries, the UNFCCC does little to address issues related to climate change and food security. This is a pity, as the agricultural sector in industrialized countries will play an important role in meeting the growing global demand for food. Developed countries, including key players such as the EU, should therefore not wait for the UNFCCC process. The EU recently announced its intention to implement an ambitious climate-friendly and resilient food production policy, while maximising the agricultural sector`s contribution to greenhouse gas reduction and fixation. It is essential that this example be followed and implemented around the world. I hope that such initiatives will then be taken up by the international community as part of the UNFCCC process. Therefore, while the parties to the Paris Agreement have recognized the crucial importance of food security, our coalition government knows this better and believes that we should make changes to improve our effects on climate change and water quality as quickly as possible, so that we can make a difference and use its words “lead the world” to improve human influences on climate change.
