Our food system is broken: we must repair it

by Paul Polman, CEO of Unilever and Chair of the Food & Land Use Coalition (FOLU), please find the original article from the Guardian here.

Paul Polman shines a light on the challenges facing the food and land use systems, and FOLU's part in unlocking opportunities linked to making them sustainable and inclusive. Ahead of the Global Environmental Facility's (GEF) Assembly in Vietnam later this month, Paul also highlights that 30 countries collectively pledged $4.1bn (£3bn) to the seventh replenishment of the GEFGEF trust fund. For the first time, this contains a specific allocation of funds for projects that improve food systems and reduce their environmental impact. This aligns closely with our own “cross-systems” approach and is a huge opportunity to expand the FOLU approach into new countries across the globe.
