17:00–17:30 CEST — Transition to plant-centric food systems for healthier planet and people

Climate change is among the greatest threats to public health, food security, ecosystems, and the economy. Radical measures are urgently needed to prevent further global warming and the food system is one of the areas where interventions are needed most. Current food system activities produce about one third of all global greenhouse gas emissions and of this about a half come from the livestock sector. The planet calls for a plant-centric shift to much more sustainable food systems - and so do a lot of the consumers. This provides a lot of opportunities to change the way we produce our food. It is the “wow, no cow” change.

Join us as we explore the drivers and opportunities for change and how we will make it happen in our time.

Speakers:

  • Cecilia McAleavey, Director of Sustainable Eating and Public Affairs, Oatly

17:30–18:00 CEST — Accelerating regenerative agriculture and nature-based solutions through finance and policy

Given depletion of the Earth’s natural resources, including forests and farmlands, regenerative practices that improve nutrient efficiency and recycling, diversify farming systems and agro-biodiversity, enhance soil health, and restore landscapes and associated ecosystem services, thereby increasing farmers and local communities’ livelihoods, improving resilience and global nutrition, are fundamental for scaling. Locally led scalable innovation, financing models and policy support would significantly contribute to climate change adaptation and mitigation.

This panel seeks to amplify CGI’s commitment-makers who are driving tangible near-term action with the intent to inspire new efforts, as well as, accelerate and scale ongoing action in this domain.

Speakers:

  • Mayuri Ghosh, Director, Climate Resilience & Sustainability, Clinton Global Initiative
