As part of its mission to make the case for transforming food and land use systems, the Food and Land Use Coalition has supported the development of the Food and Land Use chapter of the New Climate Economy (NCE)’s ‘Global Opportunities Report’. The chapter sets out the opportunities in transforming food and land use systems to drive economic growth and deliver on environmental and sustainable development goals.
The chapter provides examples of progress and is a chance to test bold recommendations on practices such as forest protection, radical transparency, land use planning, pricing for ecosystem services and innovation. The report’s messages and recommendations were tested with leaders, including ministers of finance and environment, at a session hosted by the Coalition’s chair Paul Polman at the 2018 NCE Global Commissioner Summit on the side-lines of the World Bank Spring Meetings. The team is currently integrating feedback from this session.
The report will be launched on 6th September and will be supported by a series of events, media and communications materials. The FOLU and NCE Communications teams are working together to leverage NCE's network and communications expertise in broadcasting the Coalition’s message through the publication of the report.
