At the first Agriculture Innovation Mission for Climate (AIM for Climate) ministerial meeting in Dubai, US Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack underscored the importance of joint international action and investment in climate-smart agriculture and food systems innovation, calling on AIM for Climate partners to continue on their ambitious path towards addressing global climate change and hunger challenges. AIM for Climate officially launched in November 2022 at COP26. At that time, partners announced $4 Billion USD in increased investment for climate-smart agriculture and food systems innovation. Today, partners set a goal of doubling that investment to $8 Billion USD by November 2022 at the 27th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27) in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt.
