|Like the air we breathe and the water we drink, we all need access to nutrient-rich food to support health and wellbeing. Food production also provides employment and income and, if done sustainably, can protect landscapes and their biodiversity, sequester carbon and provide other critical ecosystem services.
Unfortunately our food systems are in crisis and contributes to land degradation, poverty, biodiversity loss and accelerating climate change.
There is an alternative: nature-positive solutions based on scientific evidence that diversify our food systems, build new and equitable markets for a wider range of domesticated crops from wild foods to create value for local and Indigenous communities and the role of forest and trees for creating a sustainable food systems.
Find out how to fix our food systems on Sept. 2, when CIFOR-ICRAF and its partners will present solutions to tackle this crisis featuring a range of speakers from policy makers to farmers to highlight the ways the world can advance progress towards a resilient, people-focused food systems using forests, trees and other healthy landscapes and launch a new alliance on nature-positive solutions to inform international landmark initiatives.
