Why Land Use, Food & Agriculture?

Farming and other forms of land use are highly exposed to environmental changes, and those who work and manage the land have much to lose as well as gain. Agriculture as a whole is a carbon emitter, although emissions from food production and livestock farming can be reduced by encouraging healthier diets, reducing food waste, and changing land management practices. Our shifts in food demand and farming practices may increase land for restorative use, with productivity redefined based on the ability to capture carbon, prevent flooding or improve biodiversity.
