How are cities maintaining access to safe and nutritious food for vulnerable populations in times of Covid-19?
As the world is struggling with the rapid-onset COVID-19 crisis, and while it is early to conclude which response strategies were the most successful, we can already start drawing some lessons to help shape our response to the slow-onset disaster of climate change. We share here seven such lessons on how to ensure that the recovery from the COVID-19 crisis will happen in a way that will still put the 2030 Agenda and the Paris Agreement at the center of sustainable development efforts.
The web-based Community of Practice (CoP) on food loss and waste reduction serves as a global convener and an integrator of knowledge on post-harvest loss (PHL) and food waste reduction. It offers a platform to facilitate linkages and information sharing amongst stakeholders and relevant networks, projects and programs.
Society is experiencing extreme climate events and rapid biodiversity loss, alongside a rise in fake news and rapid technological innovation. How can we connect the dots between today’s biggest societal issues, the state of the planet now, and the future we are shaping? Our Future on Earth 2020 is a report synthesizing the latest Earth science alongside current events.
In response to the COVID-19 crisis, an unprecedented coalition has come together to launch “Earth School,” which provides free, high-quality educational content to help students, parents and teachers around the world who are currently at home. Initiated by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) and TED-Ed, Earth School takes students on a 30-day “Adventure” through the natural world.
Organized by the Future Food Institute and FAO elearning Academy on 22 April 2020, this knowledge sharing experience, fully aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals framework, will be human and nature-centred and will reflect the shift from design-thinking to prosperity-thinking, by placing nature back at the centre of our lives.
