Food and Nutrition Security

The right to food is one of the most basic rights of humankind. However, hunger remains unacceptably widespread, while many systems of food production in use are simply unsustainable.

The Foundation believes addressing climate change and achieving sustainability in the global food system need to be recognised as dual imperatives. Our work in this area is guided by our Climate Justice Principle: Support the right to development.
