A unifying framework for food systems transformation

The need for transformational change in global agri-food systems has now been widely acknowledged in order to address the climate emergency and the growing environmental, socio-economic and health challenges these systems generate. Today’s dominant agri-food systems – largely driven by an industrial logic of economies of scale, intensification, specialization, and uniformization – are providing neither food security nor adequate nutrition for al l . Moving us dangerously beyond the ‘Planetary Boundaries’ within which humanity can continue to safely operate, these food systems are undermining the very foundation they rely on by destroying soil fertility and biodiversity, over-exploiting water resources, pol luting the soil , air and water, and contributing more GHG emissions than any other sector. Addressing these challenges cannot be achieved alone by incremental improvements to the current industrial model. Instead, a bold paradigm shift is needed to redesign our agri-food systems. Food systems reform will prove critical to meet the Sustainable Development Goals, the targets of the Paris Climate Agreement and Convention on Biological Diversity, and to uphold the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Peasants and Other People Working in Rural Areas.
