CHALLENGE 3

Transforming food systems

Transforming food
systems

The world’s food production and distribution systems are deeply flawed: unsustainable agricultural practices continue to destroy forests, degrade land and intensify climate change, while over two billion people experience some type of malnutrition.

By supporting landscape management practices and local innovations to sustainably produce diverse foods and maintain and enhance ecosystem services, CIFOR-ICRAF is finding ways to promote healthy diets – without overshooting planetary boundaries.

Transforming food systems: Fast facts

30% of food
is lost or wasted
26%
of all greenhouse gas emissions
result from food production
11% of people
