Growing competition for land, water, and energy, in addition to the overexploitation of fisheries, will affect our ability to produce food, as will the urgent requirement to reduce the impact of the food system on the environment. The effects of climate change are a further threat. But the world can produce more food and can ensure that it is used more efficiently and equitably. A multifaceted and linked global strategy is needed to ensure sustainable and equitable food security."
The Rainforest Alliance is working toward this end, collaborating with farmers and businesses to ensure that we can feed an expanding population while conserving forests and wildlife and improving the livelihoods of communities around the world.
