The ‘Two Degree Initiative’ (2DI) is a coalition of hundreds of like-minded partner organizations from around the world. They are brought together with a single unifying vision – to transform the global food system for a climate-smart future.

2DI’s ambition is to reach 200 million farmers through ten participating Regional Challenges that include projects in low- and middle-income countries. It organizes its projects around a set of themes that align with a rigorous theory of change developed by CCAFS.

In this event, WRI will present the preliminary findings of a forthcoming report that summarizes the key outcomes of the 2DI Listening Sessions.

These findings will inform the reflections from our panelists and viewers at home, who are encouraged to ask questions through live Q&A apps made available on the day.

Together, CCAFS, WRI and all 2DI partners hope to chart a roadmap for future engagement opportunities, explore ways to raise awareness of the coalition’s objectives and encourage more partners to join the coalition.
