Countries are already preparing for the United Nations Climate Change Conference COP26 with ambitious 2030 emissions reductions targets that align with reaching Net Zero by the middle of the century.
As the Global Food System contributes around 30% of all greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), changing the way we grow, process and consume food will be a central plank of delivering a Net Zero future.
The United Nations Food Systems Summit (UNFSS) in September 2021 will outline the effects of our current food system and what can be done to improve it in a way that delivers benefits to people and helps the deliver a Net Zero future. To do this, we need to understand where to act across the world, how to deliver change rapidly and crucially-cost effectively. The scale of the change needed is monumental.
This virtual event will explore and debate what needs to be done and how. The debate will be informed by a new report on how to deliver a Net Zero food system for one large economy - the UK, which will be published on the same day as the conference. Join us to hear from a diverse array of speakers from around the world delving into their experiences and outlooks culminating in a summary of priorities for action.
