Climate Change

Climate change and agriculture are tied directly to social equity and rural development. Climate change poses enormous new challenges for food production, farmers and rural communities. IATP works at the intersection of climate and agriculture to advocate for policies and approaches that empower farmers and rural communities to develop appropriate, bottom-up solutions; reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help farmers and communities adapt; and advances a fair and just transition toward more climate resilient, agroecological systems for farmers and rural communities. Our Rural Climate Dialogues engage rural communities to take action on climate change.

Since the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy's founding in 1986, we have fought alongside allies for food systems that work for people and the planet. Headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota with offices in Washington, D.C. and Berlin, Germany, IATP brings together policy experts united by a shared passion for healthy, just and resilient food systems.

Real Zero Europe Statement

To avoid the worst effects of climate chaos, we must radically transform, equitably and justly, the way we produce our food, manage our ecosystems, and power our economies. We must urgently deploy real and proven, socially just and people-led solutions and dramatically reduce greenhouse gas emissions at source, down to Real Zero.
