ABSTRACT
Speed read ‘Nature-based solutions’ to farming challenges urged at UN Food Systems Summit Food systems ‘must be climate neutral’ says summit’s science chief Critics say groups most affected were not represented The United Nations has urged the world to urgently review its food production and consumption patterns in order to save the planet, at a landmark summit beset by controversy and boycotts. In a keynote speech at the historic UN Food Systems Summit held online on Thursday, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said the world must adopt natural alternatives to industrial agricultural practises that protect the planet as it battles rising hunger, malnutrition and obesity. Joachim von Braun, chair of the summit’s scientific group, said that “food systems can and must be climate neutral”, adding “Most food systems are not sustainable. [...]science must not only address production and consumption or the value chain, but the whole food system.”
