The International Agricultural Research Cooperation for Climate Change (the Follow-up side event of G7 Niigata Agriculture Ministers’ Meeting at the COP22, UN Climate Change Conference 2016) was held in Marrakech, Morocco on November 10th, 2016. The Government of Japan chaired the event, which followed soon after the entry into force of the Paris Agreement on November 4th, 2016. Representative stakeholders from G7 Countries (Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and United States of America) and two international organizations (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR)) attended the side event, with four international initiatives, including the GRA, the GACSA, the 4/1000 Initiative, and the Global Soil Partnership (GSP). Approximately 40 observers also attended.
