Low emission food systems: innovations, transformations, and finance
The Global Alliance (GASP) catalyzes virtuous partnerships of governments, international organizations, entrepreneurs, earth champions and global investors to tackle the world’s most pressing challenges. GASP enables system-scale transformation by leveraging private finance for public good.
Globally, food system emissions contribute about one-third to global greenhouse gas emissions. This problem is complex because the perception is that low-carbon solutions cannot jeopardize food security and nutrition. Yet, those emissions (and other side effects of food production such as water pollution, soil erosion, and biodiversity loss) should be considered an inherent inefficiency. Addressing this inefficiency allows for making food systems more environmentally sustainable, and healthier, and improving livelihoods. The CGIAR initiative for Low-Emission Food Systems, supported by CIFOR-ICRAF, works towards supporting countries in the transition towards low-emission food systems.
This session will explore action, data, artificial intelligence, and finance in food system transformations. And it will bring GASP partners working on technical and financial solutions into a discussion with CGIAR scientists, to forge new partnerships and find the best way forward.
