Climate

We aim to transform food systems to reduce greenhouse gas concentrations and improve the climate resiliency of global food systems.

We work with diverse partners and communities to build a collective vision and identify strategic pathways via changes in agricultural and food production practices and the global food system. We recognize the interrelationship between climate change, biodiversity, health, food security, land rights and human rights, and the uneven burden of climate change impacts on low-income countries and vulnerable populations.

Through our work on climate, we will:

  • Establish a connected and coordinated philanthropic network, including the climate funding community, to amplify our collective voice and reach on the global stage;
  • Reframe the food systems and climate narrative through targeted research to underscore the co-benefits of sustainable food systems, helping those messages better resonate with diverse communities; and
  • Engage climate negotiators, NGOs, academics, farmers and practitioners, philanthropists, the private sector, multilateral institutions and others to develop shared priorities and strategic pathways for food systems transformation.
