Next week, thousands of ministers and diplomats from across the world will descend on an event campus in Glasgow, Scotland for the most important climate conference in recent years—and perhaps the most significant international meeting of our lifetimes. From Oct. 31 to Nov. 12, they’ll be bringing forward countries’ first updated plans to cut emissions since the Paris accords six years ago, and finalizing the so-called “Paris Rulebook” that will govern how the agreement’s ambitious emissions reductions will actually be implemented around the world.

Seizing the Post-Pandemic Opportunity to Transform Food Systems
By Danielle NierenbergNEW ORLEANS, United States, Sep 28 2021 (IPS) The global food system needs a massive overhaul – this was clear before the Covid pandemic and it is even more true today.
