Applying the land-water-food-energy nexus
- Impact Area
To achieve net zero and unlock progress on multiple SDGs, we need new, coordinated action to manage the complex interplay between food, land, energy, and water systems
Mounting scientific evidence points to food systems being responsible for around a third of global greenhouse gas emissions. Thus, food systems transformation is increasingly recognized as critical on the path to net-zero emissions.
But the transition to net zero demands that we embrace the complexity inherent in food systems that are interconnected with water, energy, forestry, and biodiversity. All are systems that are strongly intertwined with each other, and all are critical to rural livelihoods, food and nutrition security, and gender and social inclusion.
And a system (like a network) is only as strong as its weakest link.
