The number of people suffering from chronic hunger could rise dramatically. Getting the food system right is central to a resilient recovery across the world, creating the potential for millions of new jobs, less hunger, greater food security and better management of key natural resources like soil, water, forests and the ocean.

"If you want to change the world, it’s not a little bit like Archimedes said: ‘Give me a lever and I can tilt the world,’” says Paul Polman, chair of the Food and Land Use Coalition (FOLU). “Here you need a few levers to tilt the food system.” Polman and FOLU's Ed Davey explain how those levers can work, following a high-level meeting organized by WRI and WWF and attended by His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales.

This working paper is a contribution to the FOLU 2019 report, Growing Better: Ten Critical Transitions to Transform Food and Land Use. The paper answers four questions:

  • What public sector measures could conserve and restore forests?
  • Why haven’t these public measures sufficiently worked at scale yet?
  • How can one overcome the economic and political economy barriers to these measures?

Too much food is lost or wasted, and the lack of efficiency is very bad for the climate. A progress report suggests that governments and businesses need to do more if they're going to meet Sustainable Development Goal 12.3, which calls for the world to halve food loss and waste by 2030.
