    The Koronivia Joint Work on Agriculture (KJWA) was established in November 2017, as a new process to advance discussions on issues related to agriculture under the two Subsidiary Bodies (SBs) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC): the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) and the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI). The decision recognizes the fundamental importance of agriculture in responding to climate change, and calls for joint work between the SBs on specific elements, including through workshops and expert meetings.This analysis aims to summarize the views submitted on KJWA topic 2(a): Modalities for implementation of the outcomes of the five insession workshops on issues related to agriculture and other future topics that may arise from the joint work on agriculture. The summary intends to make the wide range of views submitted more easily accessible to those interested – including Parties and observers to the UNFCCC, but also FAO staff working on climate change as well the public. The analysis takes into consideration the 17 submissions by Parties and the 14 by observers on topic 2(a) of the KJWA, submitted on KJWA topic 2(a) by 10 December 2018.

    Koronivia Joint Work on Agriculture: Analysis of submissions 2018
    Also available in:

    The Koronivia joint work (KJWA) on agriculture is a decision that was reached at the UN climate conference (COP23) in November 2018, officially acknowledging the significance of the agriculture sectors in adapting to and mitigating climate change. The paragraph 2 of the KJWA decision provides a list of initial elements on which Parties were invited to submit their views. Recognizing that KJWA does not mandate the UNFCCC secretariat to produce a synthesis of submissions made, a number of Parties attending the Dialogue suggested that FAO might provide a factual summary of the submissions. The analysis takes into consideration the 21 KJWA submissions made by Parties and 27 by observers and published by 20th of May 2018 on the UNFCCC submission portal, as well as the African Group of Negotiators (AGN) and Least Developed Countries (LDC) group submissions.

    Asia is the world’s largest producer of pork, comprising 56 percent of global pork production. Pig farming is the most important livestock related livelihood activity in the region contributing to about 20–30 percent of household income. With the largest share of market in terms of livestock production and relatively high emission intensities for beef and pork, Southeast Asia is also the second highest emitter of greenhouse gases (GHG) in the world. The ASEAN Strategic Plan of Action for Cooperation on Livestock (2016–2020) provides key signals and strategic direction for ‘sustainable livestock production and trade to contribute to growth, poverty alleviation, food security, and improved nutrition’. The ASEAN Negotiators Group on Agriculture (ANGA) developed a common position related to “improved livestock management systems, including agro pastoral production systems and others" (UNFCCC, 2020) and submitted to the Koronivia Joint Work on Agriculture (KJWA). The main purpose of this knowledge brief is to highlight the several key priority actions for the livestock sector and emphasized the need for scaling up financial support, technology transfer and capacity building needs for the livestock sector in order to advance work under the Koronivia Joint Work on Agriculture (KJWA).
