The 16th Session of COAG supported the view that the Interdepartmental Working Group (IDWG) on Climate Change should be formalised, thereby strengthening the cross-sectoral coordination and implementation of the FAO climate programme. It underlined that the role of the Organization is to provide technical inputs, focusing on such issues as data, definitions and methodologies related to agriculture and climate change. It supported the proposal to develop an integrated climate change programme based on current activities, within Regular Budget provisions, and consistent with the legal and political framework of the Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the technical work of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). It also supported a stronger collaboration among relevant Departments to address climate change issues in a harmonised way. The IDWG on Climate Change is comprised of representatives from the Agriculture, Economic and Social, Fisheries, Forestry, Sustainable Development and Technical Cooperation Departments.
