Mitigating Climate Change by Reshaping our Global Food System
Reshaping our food system is not often linked with solving human induced climate change, but the current food-value chain is responsible for 1/3 of Global GHG emissions. A large portion of these emissions stem from the increased proliferation of industrialized agriculture, which has become the modern way to feed people due to the increase in population.
It has been so effective, there are more people suffering from obesity in the world today than starvation. That said, food distribution is also extremely uneven. In the United States, food waste makes up ~20% of landfills, while Singapore is challenged with food security. Incorporating a more sustainable infrastructure from seed to waste will not only help to mitigate climate change, but will also promote human health, curb pollution and reduce water scarcity.
