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.


By 2050, nearly 10 billion people will live on the planet. Can we produce enough food sustainably? World Resources Report: Creating a Sustainable Food Future shows that it is possible – but there is no silver bullet. This report offers a five-course menu of solutions to ensure we can feed everyone without increasing emissions, fueling deforestation or exacerbating poverty. Intensive research and modeling examining the nexus of the food system, economic development, and the environment show why each of the 22 items on the menu is important and quantifies how far each solution can get us.


Can we feed 10 billion people without destroying the planet? Find the answer at the interactive worldwide launch of the complete World Resources Report: Creating a Sustainable Food Future.
