Scaling up solutions to address the triple challenge

25 Jun 2020

The Triple Challenge raises difficult questions for decision-makers and stakeholders. In particular, how can we encourage scale-up of known solutions, such as reducing food waste, and also resolve remaining trade-offs between climate mitigation, food and biodiversity restoration priorities? To find acceptable and context-specific answers to this question, we need good processes for consideration of complex political, social, economic, cultural and environmental factors and perspectives. The purpose of this session is to help generate recommendations that can support such processes. The session will draw on inputs from different stakeholders – including international organisations, local communities and the private sector – and on ideas from the audience, and will feed into the development of Triple Challenge recommendations and tools.
