Some people have more food than they need, causing 1.3 billion tonnes to be wasted across the planet every year. However many do not have any food at all; a cruel twist given how much is wasted. Agriculture provides a livelihood for 40% of people globally, but soil degradation, urbanisation, inequality and natural disasters (such as flooding or drought due to climate change) have impacted on the developing world’s ability to produce as much food, earn a living or feed their families. In developed countries increased living costs combined with low income impacts thousands of families. The every day person holds the solutions—we must promote strong policy making and leadership so that all humans across our planet are enabled to feed and support themselves, and their communities, sustainably.
