Food System Impacts on Biodiversity Loss
Launch of the new Chatham House report, ‘Food System Impacts on Biodiversity Loss’, in partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and Compassion in World Farming.
Biodiversity, crucial to human and planetary health, is declining faster than at any time in human history. Humanity relies on the earth’s natural systems to regulate the environment, maintain a habitable planet and produce food. Paradoxically, however, the way we have been producing food over the last 50 years has been driving biodiversity loss.
This special session reviews the impacts our global food system has on biodiversity and explores the ways in which we can achieve nature-friendly and biodiversity-supporting food production.
