Solving the nature nexus: Food, agriculture, land use, and water

Solutions to decarbonize the food sector exist: reducing food loss and waste, adopting dietary shifts, and adapting how we use arable land. But implementing these at scale will require the majority of farmers and billions of consumers to adapt their practices and behaviors. “Farmers are central to the sustainability transition, but they do not yet have sufficient incentives to adopt new methods and technologies,” write McKinsey’s Vasanth Ganesan, Joshua Katz, Peter Mannion, and coauthors in a recent report. On day 11 of COP28, check out these insights to unpack the incentives required for a net-zero and nature-positive food system transition.
