COP28: Interview Zitouni Ould-Dada, FAO deputy director

FAO Deputy Director Zitouni Ould-Dada discusses the critical link between climate change and food security at COP28, outlining the organization’s ongoing initiatives in this key area during an interview with Economy Middle East.

He urgently calls on countries to acknowledge the agricultural sector’s vulnerability and implement immediate transformations in food production and consumption patterns to minimize their environmental impact.

While expressing cautious optimism about the progress made at COP28, particularly the creation of a loss and damage fund, he stresses the critical importance of ensuring these funds reach vulnerable farmers as climate finance currently allocates a mere 0.3% directly to them as per Ould-Dada.
