Fix the broken food system in three steps

Threats to agriculture, climate and health are entwined. Yet policies treat each in isolation and are misaligned. National strategies for mitigating climate change pay scant attention to biodiversity and food security. The European Union’s Common Agricultural Policy includes steps to reduce emissions from livestock and fertilizers, for example, but offers no way of improving diets.

The year 2020 is a milestone for many multilateral processes, including the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity and to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. In the run-up, governments and scientists need to perform integrated analyses.
We urge scientists, policymakers and other stakeholders to adopt the three-pillars for sustainable food and land-use systems to overcome fragmentation. Each pillar needs to be refined, and scientists need to develop medium- and long-term performance and technology benchmarks.
