The climate crisis mainly affects those who are more vulnerable. That is especially the case for the poorest countries, who are being forced to their knees, and the support of rich countries is not enough.

According to the World Bank, wealthy countries do not contribute fully with the percentage of GDP that should be allocated to international cooperation, which is set at 0.7%. The Italian government, for example, provides a contribution of 0.26%, which amounts to roughly 3 billion euros. Diaspora groups, on the other hand, contribute for about 5.4 billion euros through remittances.

Agriculture is one of the fields that surely needs to be developed. Another way in which Slow Food can contribute is by introducing its international delegations with the diaspora groups living in Italy, and by creating links between these two worlds.

The event is held in collaboration with Codiasco.
