A food systems approach to climate action

Share this to :

Food systems transformation lies at the heart of climate action.

Current food, climate and environment challenges are deeply interconnected, meaning solutions must address all three aspects simultaneously, in a systemic way.

Political inaction and incoherent, disconnected initiatives that do not consider trade-offs and co-benefits associated with different agri-food transformation pathways will delay progress on climate- resilient food systems and could lead to maladaptation.

Systems approaches facilitate integrated thinking across sectors to identify positive synergies and manage trade-offs.

CGIAR recommends the promotion of inclusive, participatory, and context-specific climate actions, which requires a supportive policy and legal environment, as well as adequate financing.
