The food we eat and the way we produce it impact both planetary and human health. Agriculture accounts for 70% of all freshwater use, contributes to more than a quarter of global greenhouse gas emissions, and is a major driver of biodiversity loss. At the same time, it is not providing us with the nutrients we need. Pre-pandemic, one in ten people globally was food insecure. That number is expected to rise by 150 million particularly impacting vulnerable groups and communities.
