Human food choices and food systems are inextricably linked with climate change. From crop cultivation to fisheries and from forestry to lab-grown meat, there are strong bonds between food production, sustainable development, adaptation, and mitigation. Food systems have economic, social, and environmental components that encompass production methods, input supplies, land and water use, energy, processing, pollution, waste management, labor conditions, financing, marketing, distribution, governance, and many more. Right now, livestock is one of the largest and most complex food systems in the world, and it is connected to climate change in three major ways.
The research project "Implementation of NDCs for Renewable Energy in Sri Lanka" focuses on identifying gaps in policies and regulations in Sri Lanka to implement the country's Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) for renewable energy, with a primary focus on solar and wind energy.
The Meatless Monday Sri Lanka campaign is being implemented by SLYCAN Trust since 2015. It focuses on sustainable food consumption to address the impacts of climate change, promote animal welfare, and achieve sustainable development.

Youth engagement in developing solutions to address global challenges is a vital component in achieving success. Addressing this need, stage II of the Youth Forum on Climate Change focused on providing capacity building and support on how youth could effectively engage in developing solutions to global challenges such as environment, energy, education, poverty, health.
Ships move over 80% of global trade, which equals billions of tonnes of goods per year. Companies around the world employ a total of more than 90,000 merchant ships, including immense container ships, the largest moving things on earth.
After Paris in 2015 and Marrakech in 2016, the next step toward Paris Agreement implementation was the UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn, Germany from November 6th to 17th, 2017, including the Conference of the Parties (COP 23, CMP 13, and CMA 1-2) as well as meetings of the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI 47), the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technical Advice (SBSTA 47), and the Ad hoc Working
At present, climate change has become one of the major challenges faced by mankind. In view of the adverse impacts of climate change, cuts in global emission levels are considered to be an imperative and immediate need. The Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) has noted that livestock supply chains, the meat production industry in particular, are among the most significant contributors to climate change with emissions estimated at 7.1 gigatonnes CO2-eq per annum, representing 14.5 percent of human-induced GHG emissions. In addition, animal agriculture also results in more dire consequences as seen in the deforestation for grazing purposes, the loss of biodiversity, and pollution of water sources due to animal waste disposal.
