In the face of global crises, transformative solutions are needed more than ever. Our current food systems are outstripping our planetary boundaries and depleting the Earth’s resources. Small changes will not suffice and it is imperative that we radically rethink how food is produced and consumed. By aiming for better production, better nutrition, a better environment, and a better life, we can transform agrifood systems and build forward better by implementing sustainable and holistic solutions that consider development in the long term, inclusive economic growth, and greater resilience.
A new breed of purpose-driven organisations, visionaries and scientists with game-changing solutions are showing what the future could be. Together, agrifood tech companies, scientists, visionaries and impact investors are developing and delivering revolutionary innovation in the agriculture and food sectors to sustainably nourish people without consuming the planet.
Climate-smart and regenerative agriculture practices together with digital innovations are showing tremendous potential in helping to address climate and biodiversity loss in both areas of mitigation and adaptation. Even more promising are the willingness, capacities and opportunities for farming and producer communities around the world to lead transitions for agrifood systems to be net-zero, nature-positive that nourish all.
Roadblocks exist and enablers are needed to scale and adapt solutions to ensure they are successful, have impact and are accessible. From finance and skills to regulation and access, new approaches are needed.
