Sustainable food

One in eight people goes to bed hungry every night … in a world full of food.

Small farms around the world put food on the plates of one in three people on earth. Yet wild weather and unpredictable seasons are changing what farmers can grow. Food prices are going up. Food quality is going down. Nearly a billion of the world’s poorest people – people who did the least to cause climate change – are finding it even harder to feed their families. 

We are demanding a fairer and sustainable global food system so that everyone has enough to eat, always. 

That means investing in the small-scale food producers, particularly women, who produce much of the world's food. 

We work to make small farms more productive by supporting local producers with sustainable techniques.

We help farmers adapt to climate change, and to secure and protect their access to land.

And we’re demanding governments and big businesses cut emissions - to help farmers deal with changing weather and make sure there’s enough good food for us all.
