Report: Food Sustainability – The Brief
Here are some extracts from prominent organisations’ websites that call-to-action the world’s governments businesses and the food industry to reduce the impact that the world’s food production processes are having on our planet. During this project ask yourself how businesses in the food industry can become more responsible sustainable and ethical in their operations?
The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Report, ‘Appetite for Destruction’ (2017) provides context for this Report. Please note you can also read the full report which is in the PAD Learning Room on the ‘NOW’ system.
WWFs vision is a future where people and nature thrive together. Ensuring that all people have easy access to sufficiently nourishing food is an essential part of this future. However today’s food system occupies ever more land uses more freshwater resources and contributes significantly to environmental degradation habitat loss and climate change.
As well as undermining the nature that we depend on today’s food system is under pressure from a growing global population which is expected to surpass nine billion by 2050.
Three billion people are set to enter the global middle classes with a majority living in urban areas as we see the rise of 41 megacities with 10 million or more residents by 2030.
As people move from the countryside to cities and become weal thier they tend to increase their calorie intake and move toward a Western-style diet with more meat dairy and processed foods. With a growing demand for resource-intensive animal products comes an increased need for animal feed putting further strain on land water resources and biodiversity. As well as threatening the future of our living planet this has serious implication for food security health and well-being.
