AIM for Climate Support Grows (Ind. Report)
AIM for Climate
Date: 2021-10-06
In Washington, the Agriculture Innovation Mission for Climate (AIM for Climate) initiative to transform the global agricultural sector reports it has the support of 30 nations -- including Canada and the United States -- as well as the The UN Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the United Kingdom's COP26 Presidency, U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. AIM for Climate will be officially launched at the 26th UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow, Scotland, this November.

AIM for Climate is focused on dramatically increasing public and private investment for innovation in climate-smart agriculture and food systems.

The initiative was announced by U.S. President Joe Biden and UAE Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum at President Biden's Leaders Summit on Climate in April, this year.

AIM for Climate will focus on three main investment channels: scientific breakthroughs via basic agricultural research; public and private applied innovation and research for development; and the development and deployment of practical, actionable research and information.
