Food systems are a major driver of global biodiversity loss, deforestation, water scarcity and pollution, and pesticide toxicity.
Food production also generates greenhouse gas emissions that are a major contributor to climate change. With 1/3 of the earth’s land already used for agriculture and a growing global population, changes to both food production systems and consumption (on the part of organisations and individuals) are essential for a sustainable future where everyone has access to healthy food.
Join Oxford Martin School's panel, Dr Michael Clark, Oxford Martin Programme on Biodiversity & Society; Dr Sasha Gennet, The Nature Conservancy; Dr Joseph Poore, Oxford Martin Programme on Food Sustainability Analytics & Dr Tara Garnett (Chair), Table, as they discuss how sustainability in agriculture, food labelling, diet changes, and policy can help can create a food system that not only provides enough food, but keeps us and the planet healthy.
