Alimentation et agriculture

We face the dual challenge of feeding 10 billion sustainably by 2050 while reducing the global impact of our agri-food system.

Approximately one third of the world’s arable land is degraded. However, healthy soils can provide a vital solution to mitigate climate change by sequestering carbon.

Today’s agriculture stands as the:

  • 1st contributor to biodiversity loss, attributed to the widespread use of pesticides and chemicals, as well as habitat destruction resulting from deforestation.
  • 1st contributor to water scarcity.
  • 2nd contributor to climate change, accounting for one-quarter of greenhouse gas emissions, due to the release of greenhouse gases from excessive fertilizer use, intensive cattle farming, and changes in land use.

Transforming our agricultural and food systems emerges as a critical priority.
