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. 

Q&A: The SEC’s proposed rule on the disclosure of climate-related financial risk 

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) released a proposed rule on mandatory corporate disclosure of climate-related financial risks in March 2022. The proposed rule will require all publicly traded companies, including major food and agriculture corporations, to disclose their annual climate emissions and other information relevant to investors.
