A commitment by local and regional governments to tackle the climate emergency through integrated food policies and a call on national governments to act

THE GLASGOW FOOD AND CLIMATE DECLARATION

The Glasgow Food and Climate Declaration brings together local and regional authorities from across the world to speak with a unified voice in committing to putting into practice integrated food policies to tackle the climate emergency.
 
Launched at the UN COP26 climate negotiations in Glasgow, the call encourages national governments to take joined-up action on food and climate.

Why are food systems and local action at the heart of the global climate emergency?

The Glasgow Food and Climate Declaration is a groundbreaking commitment on the role of local food systems and agriculture in fighting climate change, and the role of cities in achieving this goal.

The Glasgow Food and Climate Declaration embodies many of the issues closest to the City of Glasgow, and that is that climate justice and social justice are indivisible. Our transition to net-zero must be a just transition with people and communities at its heart.
