Food & Agriculture

Food fuels our bodies and plays a powerful role in human health, culture, productivity and potential. It is central to livelihoods, creating enjoyment, and connection to family, community and natural ecosystems on land and in water. But the food system is also contributing to the pressing global challenges. It contributes to approximately one-quarter of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, three-quarters of biodiversity loss, and is a leading cause of non-communicable disease, adding to societal cost burdens through health care, stunting and malnutrition. Our vision is for a food system that addresses these challenges and meets societal needs in 2050: “a regenerative and equitable food system producing healthy, safe and nutritious food for all.
