Aligning Food Systems with Climate and Biodiversity Targets - Assessing the Suitability of Policy Action over the Next Decade

Delivering sustainable economic growth
Posted Oct 19, 2022 | Chatham House

Tackling the dual crises of climate change and biodiversity loss requires extraordinary levels of action across all sectors, at an unprecedented speed. However, efforts on both fronts could be negated by the increase of environmental impacts from food systems. In this Chatham House paper, Helen Harwatt, Klas Wetterberg, Arpana Giritharan and Tim Benton consider the policy outlook at the climate–biodiversity–food nexus over the current decade, assess the suitability of proposed action and identify fundamental inconsistencies that will inhibit progress and worsen outcomes. They suggest that action has not been aligned with treaties to tackle these critical issues, and the decade ahead must be a major turning point to avoid the worst impacts.
