Climate Emergency and the Future of Food: Transformation for a 1.5ºC World
The Salzburg Process | Online 21 April - 6 May 2020
Bringing together approximately 350 diverse changemakers, experts and leaders from local to global levels, the Salzburg Process on the Climate Emergency and the Future of Food is dedicated to accelerating the actions, investments and policies needed to transform food systems.
To support The Salzburg Process, we commissioned five discussion papers on these “hot topics” central to the food-climate nexus: nature-based solutions, livestock production, sustainable and healthy diets, food loss and waste, and just transitions. We anticipate that these discussion papers will serve as ‘food-for-thought’ and act as a catalyst for informed debate amongst participants from a diversity of sectoral, geographical, and cultural perspectives. The discussion papers are not meant to be comprehensive overviews of each topic, but instead an entry point for discussion, debate, and deliberation, ultimately leading to deeper understandings of areas of convergence and divergence across participants.
This unique event focused on collaboration, mixing thought-provoking presentations and curated conversations with knowledge exchange, informal interactions and practical group work. It connected individuals, communities and networks across sectors, silos and generations. Together we built momentum for strategic alignment on key global issues, leverage new and untapped opportunities, and move forward together – holistically and systemically – in this critical year for climate action.
