Global Food System and Climate Change: A Vicious Cycle
Agriculture's heavy reliance on fossil fuels drives significant greenhouse gas emissions, accelerating climate change and weakening the global food system. This unsustainable energy use not only exacerbates climate threats but also hinders food production and distribution, particularly impacting vulnerable populations. Given this degradation, food systems will be challenged to meet the anticipated 60% rise in global food demand by 2050.
