Like many other reports, this publication confirms that our food systems are failing us. Labelling the status quo as ‘cause for grave concern’, the report summarises action around four areas: rerouting farming and rural livelihoods to new trajectories; de-risking livelihoods, farms and value chains; reducing emissions through diets and value chains; realigning policies, finance, support to social movements and innovation. All four of these areas can only be transformed through better, transparent, and actionable public private engagement.  Figure 4 on page 11 shows the interdependent impacts of the food system on climate change and how climate change is altering the food system. By contrast, Figure 5 on page 13 models a sustainable, inclusive, healthy, and climate resilient food system. The information in this report is applicable to all public and private partnerships, engagement and actors working in the food system.
