The Greater Mekong Subregion has been undergoing diverse and rapid agricultural transformation over the last decades and contributing majorly to the global food supply. However, the agricultural sector is also a significant source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, making it essential for the region to reduce GHG emissions and mitigate short- and long-term impacts of climate change and environmental trade-offs in transitioning agricultural systems.
The dialogue aims to be an ongoing process that requires collaboration and cooperation among all stakeholders to find solutions that will help reduce GHG emissions in the agricultural sector and support the long-term sustainability and resilience of farming communities in the region.
