While energy use contributes to nearly three-quarters of global GHG emissions, food systems contribute to one-third. Food systems transformation must go hand-in-hand with a phase out of fossil fuels as an integrated climate priority. 

This session will explore how fossil fuel dependency is holding back food systems transformation and opportunities to collaborate on decarbonising and transforming our food systems to be more equitable, healthy, and resilient. We will share insights from a new analysis, particularly on how shifting away from a reliance on agrochemicals toward regenerative and agroecological food production is key to weaning our food systems off fossil fuels.
