Food & Land-Use Integrated Pathways and Policy Action for Sustainable Food and Land Systems

Our current ways of food production and land use cost us nearly $12 trillion per year in damage to people and the planet. Transforming our food and land-use systems requires an integrated approach that recognizes the interconnections between agriculture, biodiversity, food security, nutrition, climate change, rural livelihoods, water use, and trade. This calls for tailored tools and analyses to support decision-making in policy processes, targeted support for an interdisciplinary group of experts, and collaboration between local and global actors.

Through the Food, Agriculture, Biodiversity, Land-Use, and Energy (FABLE) Consortium and the Food, Environment, Land and Development (FELD) Programme, the SDSN provides technical inputs, practical modeling, comparative policy and systems- and action-focused analyses, and related capacity building in support of accelerated and scaled up global and national action on food and land use: the fourth SDG transformation.

The Food, Agriculture, Biodiversity, Land-Use, and Energy (FABLE) Consortium

FABLE is a 24-country collaborative initiative that focuses on translating policies and commitments on food and land use into quantitative targets and actionable strategies to support governments’ ambitious objectives.
