Feeding future generations while avoiding dangerous levels of climate change will increasingly depend on our ability to navigate competing land use priorities – whether in the provision of food and fuels, preserving biodiversity or climate change mitigation.
Identifying viable and sustainable pathways to transform land-based sectors will not be straightforward given the interdependencies of land-related goods and services. A combination of approaches would be needed to realize this transformation and manage the diverging trade-offs. Interventions could include disruptive technologies and business models that change how food is made and reaches customers, along with shaping demand preferences to encourage more sustainable diets.
