Our food system is broken. It contributes to climate change, water stress, desertification and ecosystem degradation. It’s also a vast contributor to global emissions.
After the success of the Paris Agreement, I can walk into any room shouting “2°C!” and everyone knows that I am talking about climate change. We have a problem, there is a science-based target to aim for, and we are implementing the solutions to solve it.
If I walk into those same rooms and shout “food,” people would just look around for lunch…
