Toward 2030: Food system transformation for healthier people and the planet
Food system transformation is not only necessary, but imperative. If done correctly, food system transformation will improve human lives, preserve and improve ecosystems and make significant contributions to fixing the climate crisis. It is of particular importance that food system transformation takes into account the world’s low- and middle-income countries, which are not only facing hunger but also need greater access to more and healthier food for improved nutrition. Food system transformation must be equitable across the globe.
The Alliance of Bioversity International and The International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) work at the nexus of food systems, the environment and agriculture. In 2020, a year of both tremendous loss and challenges, the Alliance successfully advanced its work in all priority research areas, including on global, regional and local food systems.
This annual report examines how the Alliance's work can influence a decade of food system transformation that will lead to healthier people and planet. It is split into different sections pertaining to different research topics, including climate resilience, and regions of interest.
