Food & Agriculture
Food and agriculture sit at the intersection of every one of today's most pressing global challenges. Climate and water, world hunger, economic and financial stability, biodiversity and environmental health all pivot one very pragmatic question: "How to feed people while stewarding the natural resource base on which we — as well as future generations — all depend for survival?"
Industrial agriculture uses over 70% of the world's fresh water resources, is the leading driver of biodiversity loss and contributes more than 30% of climate-changing greenhouse gases — all while feeding fewer than one third of the earth's population. Peasants, urban gardeners and hunter-gatherers feed the rest.
