The challenge: Today’s food systems are failing on both the consumption and production sides:
- Malnutrition is affecting one in three people on the planet.
- Fruit and vegetable production provides only 78% of the world population’s nutritional needs.
- Planetary boundaries are being pushed beyond safe limits – agriculture contributes around 24% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions and is the single largest user of fresh water on the planet.
- Agricultural supply chains and agribusiness are encountering operational risks from climate change and face reputational risks from resource intensive production and low nutrition production lines.
The solution: Increase agrobiodiversity in supply chains and land management to transform food and agriculture systems.
