How the world’s food system and land use evolve will have major implications for the health of the planet. The world needs a more sustainable food system, one that embeds sustainability from farm to fork, generates agricultural commodities without deforestation and habitat conversion, and restores soils and degraded areas. Interventions at the landscape scale, based on comprehensive land use planning, are necessary to foster a transformational change in food systems and land use. The GEF promotes holistic approaches to help countries reconcile competing social, economic, and environmental objectives of land management. The round table will examine the emerging opportunities for achieving a sustainable food and land use system, and the role that governments and the private sector can play.
