For the third year in a row, Regeneration International (RI), an independent nonprofit supported by OCA, sent a delegation to the global climate summit.
Our delegation this year was smaller than those in 2015 and 2016, but it was a diverse—and powerful—group that represented us at COP23 in Bonn, Germany.
In her report, Ercilia Sahores (who represented RI and OCA, along with others), wrote:
Our delegation consisted of: a German-French, an English-French, a Zimbabwean and an Argentine. What sounds like the beginning of a joke—a German, an Englishman, a Zimbabwean and an Argentine walk into a bar—turned out to be a great combination of different skill sets, languages, cultures, experiences . . . and lots of porridge for breakfast.
Ercilia produced this report on RI’s growing collaboration with France’s 4 per 1000: Soils for Food Security and Climate Initiative, our collaborative “Speed up the Cool Down” event, and other agriculture-related news from COP23.
