Food is at the crossroads of some of the most critical issues of our time. Scientists and experts are calling for changes in the food-water-energy nexus in order to meet the SDGs and the terms of the Paris agreement on climate. But often, progress in one area, such as sustainability, is done at the expense of progress in another area, such as affordability and access to nutritious food. Systemic approaches help navigate these trade-offs and provide fertile ground for win-win solutions. In the Global South, some of these solutions are already in the making. In this session, you will hear from a policymaker, a scientist, a farmer representative and a young entrepreneur on how they strive to navigate these trade-offs.
