Peter Holmgren – Food, Forests and Landscapes

Peter Holmgren, Director General of the Center for International Forestry Research, speaking at the Food, Forests and Landscapes seminar at IFPRI in Washington, DC, on 24 June 2013, offers his perspectives on a landscape approach and how it can be used to simultaneously address multiple challenges.

More than 50% of Earth’s forests have now disappeared and more than 1/3 of the food produced is going to waste. Global leaders search for policies to help feed a growing population, boost nutrition, raise incomes and improve equity while being mindful of sustainable landscapes, protecting biodiversity and combating climate change.
