The role of chemistry in addressing hunger and food security

ACS Campaign for a Sustainable Future

ACS Campaign for a Sustainable Future: Zero Hunger Summit
In 2015, the United Nations set the goal of achieving “Zero Hunger” - ending world hunger and providing universal food security by 2030. Unfortunately, climate change, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the war in Ukraine have made this ambitious goal even more challenging. But with 690 million people suffering from hunger worldwide and a growing world population, work must be done now to build sustainable food systems for all.

Chemistry and engineering have long had an essential part to play in the fight against hunger. From the invention of chemical fertilizers over a century ago to carbon capture technology being developed today, innovation has been critical for increasing the quantity and quality of food. But what role do chemistry and engineering play in improving food security now, and how do they interact with sustainability, economic forces, and government policy?

ACS Campaign for a Sustainable Future: Zero Hunger Summit
In 2015, the United Nations set the goal of achieving “Zero Hunger” - ending world hunger and providing universal food security by 2030. Unfortunately, climate change, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the war in Ukraine have made this ambitious goal even more challenging. But with 690 million people suffering from hunger worldwide and a growing world population, work must be done now to build sustainable food systems for all.

Chemistry and engineering have long had an essential part to play in the fight against hunger. From the invention of chemical fertilizers over a century ago to carbon capture technology being developed today, innovation has been critical for increasing the quantity and quality of food. But what role do chemistry and engineering play in improving food security now, and how do they interact with sustainability, economic forces, and government policy?

On December 5-8, the American Chemical Society is hosting the Zero Hunger Summit. Part of the Campaign for a Sustainable Future, this free online event will explore how chemistry and engineering can contribute towards the goal of “Zero Hunger.” Experts from government, industry, academia, and nonprofit organization will present on a wide range of topics, including:
-Climate Impacts on Agriculture: Adaptation & Reducing Crop Stress
-Impacts of Agriculture on Climate: Mitigation of Greenhouse Gasses 
-Optimizing Crop Production
-Sustainable Food Packaging and Reducing Waste

The sector also accounts for about 10% of the world´s final energy demand and up to 8% of global greenhouse gas emissions (1). At the same time, the chemical sector is a source of innovations and new materials that are crucial for the deployment of future-oriented low-carbon technologies. In this sense the branch is already developing scenarios for radical GHG mitigation and even complete defossilization.On behalf of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV) and under the International Climate Initiative (IKI), the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) implements the Climate Action Programme for the Chemical Industry (CAPCI) that aims to enable key actors in selected developing countries and emerging economies to identify and tap mitigation potentials in chemical production and associated value chains. The webinar series is organized by CAPCI in cooperation with the International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA)(2) and the Capacity Building Network of the United Nations Climate Secretariat (PCCB-Network) (3).

About CAPCI

The CAPCI project (Climate Action Programme for the Chemical Industry) is mainly focused on information, capacity building and knowledge sharing for the mitigation of GHG in the chemical industry in developing countries and emerging economies. At the same time, these measures will be planned and executed with an action-oriented perspective. Networking as well as the exchange of practical experiences and best practices play a decisive role.

Project Outcome:

The capacities of key actors from the private and public sector in selected developing countries and emerging economies for designing and implementing effective measures for climate protection in the chemical sector are enhanced.

Project Activities:The work packages and activities of CAPCI are assigned to three outputs:

-Knowledge, Information & Best Practices
-Training & Capacity Building
-Initiation of measures in partner countries

The conceptual approach involves information, webinars, dialogues, workshops and targeted trainings for know-how transfer and dissemination of good practices in the chemical industry. In addition, targeted advice will be provided for supporting the successful design of effective climate protection measures in the chemical industry.

Partners and StakeholdersCAPCI is cooperating with partners like ministries responsible for climate protection, chemical policies and industrial development as well as the associations of the chemical industry in selected developing countries and emerging economies. In addition to the above-mentioned partnership with the ICCA und the UNFCCC Secretariat’s capacity building network, the project draws from the experiences of relevant international projects and initiatives. CAPCI is closely linked with the ISC3 - International Sustainable Chemistry Collaborative Center (see: www.isc3.org). The mission of the ISC3 is to shape the transformation of the chemical sector towards sustainable chemistry, thereby contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) and to a circular economy. Tackling climate change is a crucial area for a sustainable chemistry; hence CAPCI directly contributes to the ISC3 mission.Replicable best practices and know-how will be disseminated in close cooperation with relevant international organisations and cooperation projects that are also supported in the framework of the IKI, e.g. PROKLIMA (www.giz.de/proklima), the International PtX Hub (https://ptx-hub.org) or the Nitric Acid Climate Action Group NACAG (www.nitricacidaction.org). Project measures like information, dialogue workshops and trainings are designed in close cooperation and according to the needs of partners in selected partner countries – as a prerequisite for enhancing capacities and anchoring know-how in a sustainable manner.

End Date: 12.09.2022 - 02:30 PM
Location: > >

A new date has been selected for the UNEP virtual event titled “Planning for Strategic Action to Advance Green and Sustainable Chemistry”. It will take place on September 12th 13h00-14h30 (Central European Time), you can register using this Microsoft Teams Link.As before, the event will consist of two sessions featuring a guided panel discussion in which panelists will share their perspectives and elaborate on planning processes which led to strategic green and sustainable chemistry action. Each panel discussion will be followed by exchanges with the audience.Further details can be found in the concept note and flyer attached to this email. An infographic is also attached with background on UNEP’s work on green and sustainable chemistry.  

UNEP will organize a workshop on strategic planning and action to advance green and sustainable chemistry in which experts and stakeholders will share relevant experiences and identify lessons learned via a guided panel discussion and audience exchange. The examples and case studies gathered will be used to develop UNEP resources and tools that aim to inspire and guide stakeholders in planning and implementing strategic action which advance UNEP’s Ten Objectives and Guiding Considerations for Green and Sustainable Chemistry.The overall goal of the workshop is to foster strategic action by diverse stakeholders relevant for achieving the vision for green and sustainable chemistry. Specific objectives include:• Gather illustrative examples of planning relevant to strategic action for green and sustainable chemistry• Gain insight on key process steps of planning for green and sustainable chemistry strategic action from a range of stakeholder groups.• Hear perspectives on the most useful format to present the case studies to maximize uptake.• Align a set of proposed steps for planning strategic green and sustainable chemistry action with real-world case studiesIn response to UNEA resolution 4/8 adopted at UNEA-4 in 2019, UNEP is preparing manuals on green and sustainable chemistry. The Green and Sustainable Chemistry: Framework Manual, released in 2020 is available online with a specialized manual on green and sustainable chemistry education in the final stages of development. At the center of the Framework Manual and UNEP’s work on the topic are ten objectives and guiding considerations for green and sustainable chemistry. Ranging from green molecular design to ensuring that chemistry works to address societal needs, the objectives seek to inspire and guide relevant stakeholders to shift their chemistry innovations towards sustainability.At UNEA-5.2 in 2022, member states recognized the Framework Manual and “encouraged its use as appropriate” within UNEA Resolution 5/7 concerning the sound management of chemicals and waste. A key aspect of both Manuals with regards to implementation can be found in their respective final chapters in which calls are made for stakeholders to take strategic action and initiate the development of green and sustainable chemistry roadmaps. Building upon this call and the UNEA-5.2 resolution, UNEP is aiming to support stakeholders planning for strategic green and sustainable chemistry action.Confirmed PanelistsAhmad Ansari and Peter Gregory, ZDHC Foundation – Formulation to Zero ProgrammeLesley Onyon, World Health Organization - WHO Chemicals RoadmapBharat Jain - Gujarat Cleaner Production Centre, IndiaWorkshop Agenda1.

Leveraging on OSGEY’s expertise in convening meaningful global conversations and mobilizing young people from around the world, OSGEY hopes to give the opportunity for partners to take part in the global collective effort to empower the world’s largest generation through innovation.

The #YouthLead Innovation Festival which will take place on August 12-13, 2021, the International Youth Day, is a celebration of innovative youth-led solutions for the achievement of the SDGs and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. The Festival is a strategic and timely approach to drive our world to a solutions-oriented future through youth-led innovation as it brings together young innovators and solutions makers together with United Nations offices, policymakers and industry leaders. The event present opportunities for multistakeholder dialogue and collaboration for the use of innovation and technology to achieve Sustainable Development Goals and support the COVID19 Recovery agenda.The Festival also aims to address the fact that despite the growth of digital technology and innovation, many young innovators from the vulnerable and marginalized community are still left behind. Gender equality and the Leaving No One Behind principle are at the heart of our work as well as this celebration for International Youth Day, therefore the Festival aims to provide space and platform to highlight great innovative work of young women, LGBTQI youth, indigenous youth, migrants, refugees, and stateless youth, and young people with disabilities as well as the innovative work that aims to support them.

JGBM Sommersymposium 2022

WISSEN SCHAFFT NACHHALTIGKEIT

Type: Conference
Topic: Policy Innovation Research Information
Format: Conference
Length: 3 Days
Start Date - Time: 29.07.2022 -

Who says sustainable science has to be dull and boring? During our symposium we are proud to present a colourful mix of speakers from research, industry and the start-up landscape, all talking about their topics, ideas and visions for a more sustainable tomorrow.
The honours of opening our event will be held by our keynote speaker Prof. Dr. Jürgen Scheffran from the University of Hamburg, an expert in the field of human-society-environment interaction.

Within the past few years, our awareness of the environment and the way we have treated it up to now has grown greatly. We must no longer live at the expense of future generations and are obliged to do more for the preservation of our nature. This idea regularly drives thousands of young people to the streets under the "Fridays for Future" movement for a future worth living. We also share these concerns and as bioscience students, we are asking ourselves what role science can and should play in this problem and what responsibility it must take. Therefore, we would like to give space to this topic in this summer symposium to be discussed with other students as well as with other scientists.During our symposium, we want to shine light on three major aspects of substainability. Therefore we distinguish three different sessions:

Session I – Research as key for sustainability

The pandemic has shown how irreplaceable research is for the well-being of mankind. Scientists were able to save countless lives through the development of vaccines. We therefore believe that through further research, solutions can be developed to preserve nature and our standard of living. In this block we want to listen to scientists and their research for a more sustainable life.

Session II – Sustainability in the lab

We are firmly convinced that science must play a pioneering role in social change. At the same time, however, we see that plastic and various pollutants are used in the laboratory every day. Is there another way? Green Lab initiatives have already developed strategies for sustainable research, for example to reduce plastic. Likewise, there are also companies and bio-tech startups with sustainable ideas. We would like to offer them a platform in this part of our symposium.

Session III – sustainable working conditions for scientists

In addition to the points on sustainability presented so far, we are also concerned with another aspect: the sustainable treatment of researchers in science. Despite their great responsibility, scientists rarely seem to be properly appreciated. The current law on temporary contracts for scientists puts a lot of pressure on many researchers and affects their own life and well-being. Just how precarious working conditions are in science has become apparent in recent years under the hashtag #ichbinhanna. In a panel discussion we will also address this important topic and discuss possible solutions.

On July 25 2022 (14:30 - 16:30 CEST) the United Nations Environment Programme will host the first of a series of webinars to introduce the new Science-Policy panel on Chemicals, Waste and Prevention of Pollution Prevention and the processes of the associated ad hoc open-ended working group (OEWG).

UNEA Resolution 5/8 decided that a science-policy panel should be established to contribute further to the sound management of chemicals and waste and prevent pollution, and to convene, subject to the availability of resources, an ad hoc OEWG that will begin work in 2022, with the ambition of completing it by the end of 2024.

The webinar will provide a background on the Science-Policy panel process and discuss its scope and possible structure. It will highlight Countries’ priorities on chemicals, waste and pollution as well as the role of science and academia in its modus operandi. It will be followed by a dialogue between speakers on urgent issues and questions from the chair of the meeting to the panel members. There will be an opportunity for the audience to pose questions to the panel members.
