GLF Bonn Digital Conference 2020: Food in the time of crises
Human health and livelihoods depend on planetary health. So, how can we feed a growing global population without eating the planet? The 2020 theme of GLF is “Food and Livelihoods.” Today, food systems are one of the largest sources of greenhouse gas emissions, a main driver of deforestation and the greatest threat to biodiversity. We need to transform the way we produce food and, as the COVID-19 pandemic is showing, we need to start now.LEARN MORE

WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN?
Human health and livelihoods depend on planetary health. Fortunately, increasing global food production to satisfy the demands of a growing population doesn’t need to further stress the globe’s natural resources and its biodiversity nor increase the likelihood of future pandemics. Research increasingly suggests that we already produce sufficient food yields to satisfy future generations. It's also shows that people living in multifunctional landscapes supported by intact ecosystems benefit from more nutritious foods. Join in this Digital Conference and form partnerships, forge new policies and incentives for restoration and develop new ideas to tailor these approaches to local contexts and needs.
