Our food and land use systems must be understood for what they are: both a problem and a solution.
The ways we produce and consume food and use our land cost $12 trillion a year in damage to people and the planet. If we do nothing, this will amount to $16 trillion a year by 2050. But there are remarkable opportunities. The Food and Land Use Coalition (FOLU) proposes a reform agenda centred around ten critical transitions that would enable these systems to provide food security and healthy diets for a growing global population, while also tackling climate, biodiversity, health and poverty challenges – all while unlocking $4.5 trillion a year in new business opportunities!
