The world is complex. There is no one solution for everyone. There is not an average farmer nor an average country. We need this detailed information to really fix and improve the different parts of the food system we want, with the right solution at the right place.
Climate, nature, water, nutrition and gender are not considered in credit risk assessments and investment decisions in sustainable food systems. This is a market failure that donors must address as non-sustainable businesses will suffer heavy losses as extreme weather sets in.
We need an extra US$330 billion to end hunger without harming the environment by 2030. This decade, our challenge is to use the catalytic power of governments and donors to unleash the financial power of capital markets for the benefit of everyone.
We need to find ways of building resilience because we can't afford, as a global community, a continued sort of humanitarian and emergency support. We try and catalyse our investments to influence policy to have an even greater impact on promoting sustainable food system transformation.
