We are excited to launch in partnership with Chatham House and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), a new Chatham House report: ‘Food System Impacts on Biodiversity Loss’.
UNEP is the leading global environmental authority that sets the global environmental agenda, promotes the implementation of the environmental dimension of sustainable development within the United Nations system, and serves as an authoritative advocate for the global environment.
Chatham House is an independent policy institute whose mission is to help governments and societies build a sustainably secure, prosperous, and just world.
Biodiversity is in crisis
Biodiversity, crucial to public and planetary health, is declining faster than at any time in human history. Humanity relies on the earth’s natural systems to regulate the environment, maintain a habitable planet, and produce food. Paradoxically, the way we have been producing food over the last 50 years has been driving a catastrophic loss in biodiversity.
On Wednesday, February 3rd, during a free, online event, Philip Lymbery, our Global CEO, joined by Inger Andersen, Executive Director at UNEP; Professor Tim Benton, Research Director at Chatham House; and Jane Goodall, PhD, DBE, Founder – the Jane Goodall Institute, and UN Messenger of Peace will present the new report.
In an engaging live discussion, they will review the impacts our global food system has on biodiversity and explore the ways in which we can achieve nature-friendly food production across the globe.
We invite you to join us to this special session on Wednesday, February 3 at 8 am EST. Registration is open here!
