GLF Bonn Digital Summit 2020: Food in the time of climate crisis

How to feed the world without eating the planet? The 2020 theme of GLF is “Food and Livelihoods.” Today, food production and agricultural systems are one of the largest sources of greenhouse gas emissions, a main driver of deforestation and the greatest threat to biodiversity. It’s time to transform this problem into an opportunity.

WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN?

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. 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 Summit and form partnerships, forge new policies and incentives for restoration and develop new ideas to tailor these approaches to local settings.

"Children all around the world are experiencing the effects of our climate crisis. Article 6 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child states that children have an inherent right to life. When children are experiencing floods, wildfires, heat waves, hurricanes that are disrupting their rights, then that is threatening their rights as children"

Alexandria Villaseñor
Founder, US Youth Climate Strike and Earth Uprising

"Restoration of 350 million hectares of degraded land between now and 2030 could generate $9 trillion in ecosystem services and take an additional 13-26 gigatons of greenhouse gases out of the atmosphere."

UN Environment and UN FAO

"We need to take action. Let’s do it. Let’s establish a committee with different sectors, regions and ages where we define an operational root for the decade on restoration, because we are running out of time"

FAO Representative in Mexico, Former El Salvador Minister of Environment and Natural Resources
