The NDC partnership was launched at COP 22 in Marrakesh in November 2016. Six months later the Thematic Working Group on Agriculture, Food Security and Land use (TWG) was established. This development showed that there is a shift in the debate on agriculture and climate change and those agricultural issues will remain in the focus of climate policy. In the light of the Paris agreement, the establishment of the TWG and the COP 23 decision to include agriculture into reporting in SBSTA and SBI, Germany has continuously increased their commitments to agriculture and BMZ is actively working to mainstream climate change in agricultural projects. Focus on the reinforcement of resilience in all sectors, using the NDC partnership to influence policy dialogue and facilitate cross-sectoral actions at national level.
