Engaging global stakeholders to make food systems more sustainable

Posted on 23 August 2022

The effects of climate change – warmer temperatures, rising sea levels, extreme weather events – all undermine longstanding agricultural practices, impact livelihoods and threaten to significantly increase hunger. Recent global developments continue to exacerbate food distribution and supply chain issues and contribute to rising commodity prices.

At the same time, the world’s food systems are responsible for one-third of global greenhouse gas emissions. Without taking collective action to rapidly transform agriculture and food systems, we all share the risk of failing to deliver on climate and SDG commitments by 2030. Engaging with global stakeholders remains key.
