For the first time in decades, the number of hungry people is growing instead of declining – with more than 10.8% of the world’s population hungry. At the same time, up to 30% of total greenhouse gas emissions come from our food and agriculture systems. We cannot overcome these problems in silos or disjointed solutions. We need to come together across our spheres of influence to reimagine the entire food system to better serve people and planet.
