Third of three programs on food and farming through a climate lens
ClimateFast is bringing to light the importance of the land and food production as drivers of global warming--and what we can do about it! Food systems have a huge impact on climate and climate has a huge influence on food production. Agriculture and land-use release as much carbon emissions every year as global electricity production -- and far more than the transport sector. Learn how agriculture and changes in our food system can be a climate solution. Research by Project Drawdown has demonstrated that by scaling up existing solutions, land-use can become a carbon sink rather than a source, while securing future food production, protecting natural systems, and creating a more equitable world.
