Climate negotiations: No agriculture, no deal Next month climate negotiators will reconvene in Bonn, Germany for discussions on a new global agreement for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to their impacts.

In an interview with the BBC, Dr Lindiwe Sibanda, head of the food security organization FANRPAN, said “If we go into a deal which does not help Africa adapt to climate change challenges, that does not allow the farmers to build their resilience to cope with the challenges they already face, it means we are closing out on livelihoods and closing out some countries because they will not have any income, they will not have any food.”
