Miraculously, our food system provides enough calories for 8 billion people. But it comes at a price.
Food production accounts for 70% of freshwater extraction, produces around a quarter of greenhouse gas emissions, and is a leading driver of land use change and biodiversity loss.
This isn’t a story about farmers making “poor choices”. This is a story about a global food system that isn’t fit for purpose. Unbelievably, up to 90% of farm subsidies harm people and the planet!
Despite the chaos, there is hope. Changing the food system is a viable solution to some of the world’s most pressing social and ecological problems.
I work with NGOs and mission-driven businesses that are transforming the food system with a combination of traditional ecological knowledge, regenerative farming practices, and cutting-edge technology.
