The dual challenges of overconsumption in High Income Countries and hunger in Least Developed Countries lie at the heart of food systems transformation. Global protein diversification could help improve equitable food distribution and nutrition security. Shifting away from a reliance on industrial animal agriculture will lower emissions, improve human health and increase sustainability at the local level. Crucially, a protein diversification approach must be based on equity and inclusion. Efforts must be made to ensure that Global South stakeholders and marginalised communities are involved from the onset.
