HOST: Resilient Landscapes
Currently, we use 40 percent of the Earth’s land surface to produce our food – a figure that will need to double if our current food and agricultural systems are to meet the population’s nutritional needs by 2050. Unless we change tack and adopt more sustainable, land-use efficient methods of production, such expansion could drive habitat loss for nearly 90 percent of the world’s mammal, bird and amphibian species.
Using a never-before-seen case study, this session shows how cutting-edge science can empower agribusiness supply chains to conserve forests and biodiversity. The panel features government, academia, private sector and civil society voices working together across a landscape.
