Collective action to deliver sustainable food and land use systems alongside a just rural transition
There is no shortage of commitments from an array of actors to improve food and agriculture aims. A critical ingredient to successful interventions requires representation and engagement up and down the value chains: inclusive of farmers and local communities, governments, financiers, and business. Cross-sectoral collaboration and joint action is urgently needed to deliver solutions and deliver on a 1.5 aligned pathway. This session will explore how collaboration and partnership can unlock sustainable food and land use systems, whilst also facilitating a just rural transition.
This opening session will give an overview of what ‘transformation of value chains’ looks like drawing from real-world cases and will provide discussion around what the role is for each actor in the value chain to help achieve a sustainable transition of the food and land use system.
