An initiative to improve collaboration for food security has been agreed upon by the UAE, Brazil and Cuba during the Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP28), which took place at Expo City Dubai, from 30 November to 13 December 2023. The tripartite cooperation initiative aims to deliver $50 million worth of food aid, which will be shipped from Brazil.
The initiative is part of joint efforts aimed at developing resilient food systems, sustainable agriculture, and encouraging climate action.
Through the initiative, the UAE will provide financial support to enhance the resilience and adaptability of food systems and increase investments in projects specialising in the production, distribution, and support of nutritional, healthy, and sustainable food systems, in addition to strengthening food security in collaboration with Brazil and Cuba.
Notably, the COP28 UAE Declaration on Food Systems, Sustainable Agriculture and Climate Action was approved by 150 countries. The conference succeeded in raising and stimulating more than $85 billion of funding and launched 11 pledges and declarations that received historic international support.
