We have under a decade to change the way we produce food and use natural resources if we are to feed a growing global population by 2030 while avoiding catastrophic degradation of the environment.
A new approach can turn this challenge into an opportunity by placing food, land use, and natural ecosystems at the centre of efforts to realise the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement on climate change. Together, we can achieve a just rural transition where nobody is left behind.
