Supply chain disruptions, a pandemic, extreme weather and the war in Ukraine have exposed faultlines in the global food system that we ignore at our peril. The crisis requires a complete transformation of agrifood that involves diversifying the crops we grow, the way we grow them and how we transport them.
We must change from a fossil food system into one based on food and the health of our people and planet. This must include climate-resilient and nutritious “forgotten” crops, as well as diverse farming systems that have been displaced by industrial monocultures of energy- and fertiliser-hungry staples.
