Tomorrow’s food systems need forests and trees!
How can tree-based systems foster transformative change towards healthy diets for people and our planet? Why do these systems get such little attention? In this session, we highlight some of the evidence for how forests and trees provide healthy foods directly and indirectly. We will then have three speakers from Asia, Latin America, and Africa who will showcase three tree-based interventions that are already improving diets and livelihoods while protecting the natural environment. This will be followed by a panel discussion on how these ideas can be applied more widely in other contexts with questions and answers from the audience.
