Soils. Water. Healthy oceans. Without these building blocks of nature, people would starve.


Today, 842 million people do not have enough to eat. And the pressures on our food system are only

growing.

We must figure out how to feed the world — without destroying it.


Why is our food important?

The Food We Eat

Everything we eat comes from nature. But people are placing immense pressure on the planet. The global population, already over 7 billion, is growing by roughly 83 million people every year. By 2030, about 1.4 billion people are expected to enter the global middle class. Feeding the planet while conserving the environment that underpins food production is one of the greatest challenges of our day.

Jobs And Prosperity

Agriculture and fisheries are big business. An estimated one in three of all global workers are employed in agricultural jobs, many of them small-scale farmers and fishermen who are vital to feeding the world. In Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa, small farms produce up to 80% of the total food supply.

EditResult field:forest loss due to agriculture
EditTitle:Deforestation
EditText:Agriculture is the leading cause of global deforestation, responsible for 80% of forest loss each year. Large-scale commercial agriculture — including cattle ranching, soybean farming and oil palm planting — is the leading cause of deforestation in important regions like the Amazon and southeast Asia.

EditTitle:Water use
EditText:Earth is covered with water, but only 3% is fresh, and only a fraction of that is available for human use. And of that small amount of fresh water, nearly 70% is used for agriculture. That puts humanity in a dangerous predicament. As we saw as recently as 2012, when wide-scale droughts drove up global food prices, any disruption to our freshwater supply threatens our global food supply.

EditTitle:Overfishing
EditText:Fish and chips, hold the fish? Some 1 billion people get essential nutrition from seafood. But the overfishing of some popular species, such as cod, has resulted in declines so dramatic that these fish are no longer readily available to consumers. About 30% of the world's fisheries are already overexploited or depleted.

EditResult field:global emissions from agriculture
EditTitle:Climate change
EditText:The best science we have suggests that, as the planet warms, global food production will decline — even as demand increases. And agriculture itself is playing a part. From trucks and trains that transport food to cows that graze on grass, nearly every aspect of agriculture belches gases like carbon dioxide and methane into our atmosphere. Agriculture is directly responsible for 13% of global greenhouse gas emissions.

EditText:CI’s scientists are working to find solutions to the global food crisis. We’re gaining a better understanding of how degraded fisheries can recover and how farmers can sustainably increase production. And we’re determining the conditions on the ground needed to make sure these things get done.

We’re answering questions like, “Where do all of a company’s ingredients and products come from, and how were they produced?” By doing so, we’re helping to put policies in place that reduce deforestation and overfishing.
