COP27 Deemed a Disappointment in Addressing Animal Agriculture’s Role in Climate Change

Many are calling the 27th Conference of the Parties (COP27) a “disappointment” in addressing the role of animal agriculture in climate change. Canada’s official delegation to COP27 contained representatives of the meat and dairy industries. Although the conference welcomed its first-ever Food Systems Pavilion, there were no major talks surrounding animal agriculture. The menu also featured animal-based dishes, including a beef medallion dish, a seafood platter, and a salmon dish.
