The COP28 Presidency has introduced the Technical Cooperation Collaborative (TCC) aimed at aiding the execution of the COP28 UAE declaration on sustainable agriculture, resilient food systems, and climate action.[1]

This announcement came during the 'Mobilizing for Climate Action and 2025 NDCs through Sustainable Agriculture and Resilient Food Systems' event at the Bonn Climate Change Conference, held from June 3rd to 13th.

The Bonn event helps nations realize the declaration's objectives, including the integration of food systems into their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), implementing impactful policy changes, and making climate action investments through agriculture and food systems.

Initially proposed during COP28, the TCC comprises partners working collaboratively to provide countries with high-quality technical assistance and support to achieve the declaration's goals.

The declaration emphasizes collective action to address the interplay between food systems and climate change. It mandates an initial review of progress at COP29, ensuring ongoing country progress through COP29 and COP30.

TCC partners will begin responding to country requests in the coming months. This response will involve  coverage of national priorities, identify gaps and opportunities, and streamline the scaling up of technical cooperation.

The founding members of the TCC include COP28 UAE, Italy, the US, the UK, the World Bank, Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA), Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR), The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI), and Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA).

The oil-rich nation of Azerbaijan will host the COP29 climate conference in November 2024.

Meanwhile, delegates have formally awarded the hosting rights for the United Nations Climate Conference in 2025 (COP30) to Brazil.

In November 2023, COP28 Presidency announced The Innovation for Climate Technology Alliance, which aims to drive global climate technology (climatetech) ecosystems for all players in the innovation value chain.
