Feeding 9 billion people by 2030 while protecting the vital natural systems which sustain life will be one of the defining challenges of our generation. It will require a transformation in the way in which we use land, produce food and protect nature.
Launched at the UN Climate Action Summit in September 2019, A Just Rural Transition (JRT) brings together governments, companies, civil society, farmers groups and indigenous people to support a growing global ‘community of purpose’. The JRT Vision Statement sets out a 2030 vision and key principles that will underpin a transformation in land use consistent with the Paris Agreement, halting the rapid degradation of nature and accelerating delivery of the Sustainable Development Goals.
Stakeholders who endorse the JRT Vision Statement commit to doing their part to support this transformation agenda. To add your country or organisation to the growing collective movement please contact the Just Rural Transition Secretariat on [email protected]
