4SD foundation

4SD Foundation is pleased to endorse this Call to Action for Transforming Food Systems for People, Nature, and Climate. At 4SD, we place particular emphasis on prioritising the needs of those with least agency and resources. The inclusion of their perspectives is critical to a more sustainable and equitable food systems transformation. This Call to Action recognises this and provides a further compass to guide our work going forward.

4SD Foundation seeks to maintain an independent perspective, working with all actors, at all levels (local, national, regional, global), and in all geographies. We encourage a people-centred approach.

We know that when multiple actors from different sectors and disciplines connect, explore and converge through multi-stakeholder dialogues, these can create conditions for successful collaboration. Dialogues can also help reduce siloed working and encourage synergy of efforts. 4SD commits to promoting this way of working in support of a strong movement among national and local governments, and non-state actors (civil society, farmers, businesses, indigenous peoples, youth and more), collaborating and innovating to unlock the potential of food systems as one of the main contributors to people’s sustainable development.

Abdul Latif Jameel Water and Food Systems Lab (J-WAFS), Massachusetts Institute of Technology

The Abdul Latif Jameel Water and Food Systems Lab (J-WAFS) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is an Institute-wide effort that fuels research, innovation, and cross-disciplinary collaborations focused on water and food systems to meet human need. J-WAFS leverages the world-class resources for which MIT is known to advance knowledge and innovation to create resilient systems that can deliver safe and adequate supplies of water and food in a changing world. Along with ongoing seed grants and other funding of MIT research, J-WAFS has issued a “Grand Challenge” call for proposals, and will award a $1.5M grant for an MIT project addressing the food/water/climate nexus.

J-WAFS also leads the Food and Climate Systems Transformation (FACT) Alliance, a global food systems convergence research network of over 20 different institutions. Through FACT, J-WAFS leverages the collective and complementary knowledge of worldwide experts.

J-WAFS and the FACT Alliance use a food systems convergence research framework for engaging non-state actors and other stakeholders to support co-designing solutions to vexing food and climate systems challenges. The FACT Alliance is developing a comprehensive index to assess countries’ food security vulnerability in the context of trade for multiple future global change scenarios. Another J-WAFS-led project supports transitions towards more resilient, sustainable, and equitable food systems in the Lake Victoria Basin in East Africa through a systems-oriented co-design process.

J-WAFS also collaborates with the Global Engineering and Research (GEAR) Center within MIT’s Department of Mechanical Engineering to apply a needs-based co-design process that identifies opportunities where research can improve access to sufficient and safe food for people around the world––particularly in vulnerable and underserved communities. Research efforts will utilize a collaborative stakeholder-multidisciplinary team model to ensure solutions benefit those most affected by food insecurity.

Access To Nutrition Initiative (ATNI)

ATNI endorses the Call to Action and shares the vision that by 2030, food systems deliver significant, measurable progress for people, nature, and climate.

ATNI’s Statement of Action is transforming markets so that at least half of companies’ food & beverage sales are derived from healthy products by 2030 and contribute to healthy, sustainable diets; preventing death and illness from diet related diseases. See also our Theory of Change on our website.

ATNI develops and delivers accountability tools and strategies, and challenges key actors in the food system to accelerate access to affordable, nutritious food for all, especially for society’s most vulnerable.

We catalyze change through effective collaboration with companies, investors, policymakers, consumer representatives and civic leaders.

Concretely, ATNI will develop the Global Access To Nutrition Index in 2024, 2027 and 2030, ranking the largest global food & beverage manufacturers and retailers on their nutrition efforts. ATNI will develop country rankings, including in India, Kenya and other developing markets. ATNI will engage with companies directly and by enabling institutional investors to engage with companies on their Index results. It will furthermore increase awareness of institutional and impact investors of the materiality of investing in nutrition. ATNI will also motivate national policymakers to include nutrition in ESG reporting standards and all stakeholders to standardize the definition of healthy.

ADM Capital

ADM Capital, the Asia Pacific private credit specialist, has launched its first impact fund, Asia Climate-Smart Landscape Fund (“ACLF”) for Indonesia to help address the significant funding gap for small and medium-sized enterprises engaged in sustainable agriculture, agroforestry and aquaculture in that country.

The blended finance fund will provide medium-term senior secured lending and will set both financial and impact targets for projects. Impact targets include enhancing livelihoods and increasing employment, achieving fairer gender ratios, improving land use management, and reducing greenhouse gas (“GHG”) emissions. Progress toward impact targets will be verified annually by a third party and 50% of fund carry will be linked to their achievement.

Indonesia, the world’s fourth most populous country and the largest economy in Southeast Asia, is increasing its emphasis on supply chain visibility and Environmental and Social (“E&S”) performance. The government is keen to see investment into agriculture to help reduce emissions and poverty.

With smallholder farms accounting for more than 85% of all cocoa, rubber and coffee production as well as 40% of all palm oil, ADM Capital believes that ACLF’s partnership model and blended financing for SMEs can contribute positively to Indonesia’s environmental and social agendas.

Agroecology Coalition

Agroecological food systems can tackle the climate, biodiversity, land degradation and hunger crises together – because they’re based on diversity, resilience and equity. As a systemic approach that addresses the various parts of our food system, it greatly enhances agricultural biodiversity and its multiple benefits – from production to consumption, and at various scales while promoting social justice, nurturing identity and culture, and strengthening the economic viability of rural areas.

The Agroecology Coalition aims to accelerate the transformation of food systems through agroecology, guided by the 13 principles defined by the High Level Panel of Experts (HLPE) of the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) that are aligned with 10 elements of agroecology as adopted by the FAO Members.

We believe that agroecology is central to implementing the COP28 Presidency’s call on putting nature, people, lives and livelihoods at the heart of climate action given its holistic nature. As a coalition, we endeavor to contribute to this by encouraging and supporting implementation of country pathways for food systems transformation by facilitating co-creation and exchange of knowledge and experience on agroecology; by promoting increased investments in agroecology; and by seeking political engagement and increased commitment to agroecological transformation.

Bezos Earth Fund

The Bezos Earth Fund has committed US$1bn by 2030 to support food systems transformation to tackle the dual threats of climate change and biodiversity loss, whilst delivering healthy food to a growing population. In COP28, new grants totaling US$57m are announced which will reduce methane from livestock, tackle deforestation in the Amazon and sour greater country level ambition and action in NDCs. US$843m remain to be deployed, which we intend to assign in support of the goals of the Paris Agreement and the Global Biodiversity Framework, broadly in alignment to the Non-State Actor Call to Action. Our funding will seek that emissions are significantly reduced from the food sector, and that we produce more and better food on less land (enabling us to spare land for nature). Specifically, we will strive to significantly reduce the emissions coming from livestock, promote sustainable practices, and safeguard livelihoods for farmers.

We will strive to provide consumers with more sustainable protein options by innovating in the area of alternative protein, further reducing the stress meat production places on natural systems. We will applaud and support brave and bold action by state- and non-state actors to rebalance our food systems to deliver health to people and planet.


We combine agroforestry and biofortification of forest products to accelerate the organization of the non-timber forest products sector, set up real value chains and supply chains to help achieve food self-sufficiency.

C40 Cities

C40 is pleased to join this call to action and submit our Good Food Cities Accelerator as an indication of how member cities will deliver on this call.

On behalf of mayors of some of the world’s largest cities, we recognize the power of food policy to reduce GHG emissions and deliver on the 1.5°C ambition of the Paris Agreement. We can be global leaders and develop food systems that are sustainable, inclusive and resilient accelerating our progress to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. Where our city governments directly purchase food that is served in schools, hospitals and other public institutions we will ensure those meals are healthy and sustainable and ideally sourced from organic agriculture. We will support cities to influence how food is distributed, its availability, and affordability as well as to regulate outdoor food advertisements in order to promote whole foods and discourage consumption of foods that are ultra-processed and/or high in fat, sugar and salt. We will support mayors to stimulate improvements in the ways food is produced within and beyond urban boundaries and reduce food waste to minimize emissions generated by food that is not eaten.

Cafedirect PLC

Cafedirect endorses the call to action for Transforming Food Systems for People, Nature, and Climate.

As a purpose led social enterprise, our mission and our key actions are documented in our Gold Standard, a framework for responsible business.

The Gold Standard covers our ambitious work with our smallholder growers, our wider community, Science Based Climate Targets and our advocacy for better business for resilient smallholder livelihoods.


CARE has 647 food and water systems projects across 72 countries reaching 34 million people. For CARE, gender equality and inclusion are a cornerstone of climate action and food systems transformation. Hundreds of millions of women are farming and fishing on the frontlines of the climate crisis. Together with smallholders and Indigenous Peoples, they are custodians of agrobiodiversity, producers and traders of food, providers of family nutrition. Their expertise and leadership hold keys to both food systems transformation and climate action. Our models and interventions seek gender transformative outcomes whereby discrimination is eliminated, and rights respected (for example through the scaling of a gender responsive Farmer Field and Business School curriculum).

Climate change affects genders differently and that must be reflected in policies. At COP28, we call for all actors to pursue gender-just action in their spheres of influence, domestically and internationally, and support participatory convergence of national food system transformation pathways and climate action. This means moving to the meaningful involvement of women and other marginalized groups as decision-makers in all climate and food systems actions and discussions.

Center for Global Commons at U-Tokyo

The Center for Global Commons at University of Tokyo will work with key stakeholders along the value chain of a few key commodities as well as those in critical landscapes to come up with a transition plan towards sustainable production and consumption and propose new rules and regulations of trade and investment, so that we promote sustainable farming while penalize harmful practices. We will work on natural capital accounting so that we can measure and account for value of natural capital so that our economic decision making embed the value of nature.

Center for Study Indonesian Food Anthropology and Social Enterprise Gastro Tourism Academy

Center for Study Indonesian Food Anthropology and Social Enterprise Gastro Tourism Academy is a multifaceted organization dedicated to catalyzing ecological regeneration in rural areas threatened by rapid infrastructure development and land degradation. It operates as both an independent research center and a social enterprise, aiming to transform food systems towards sustainability while fostering inclusive communities.

Recognizing the intricate relationship between human ecology and natural resources, the organization emphasizes the importance of biodiversity and circularity in ecosystems. To achieve its goals, it undertakes labor-intensive and capital-intensive activities such as Eco-Gastronomy and Agroforestry, including the innovative concept of gastro forestry. These initiatives empower local farmers and frontline food system actors to adapt to changing agricultural landscapes by integrating traditional knowledge with appropriate technology.

The organization’s interventions span various aspects of food systems, from climate resilience to sustainable production and regenerative ecology. Initiatives like communal composting and community-managed gardening demonstrate grassroots efforts to combat climate change while promoting environmental sustainability. Sustainable production practices prioritize the development of high-quality local foods and consumer education, aiming to create societal prestige around regenerative ecology.

Agroecology and agroforestry play pivotal roles in addressing hunger and improving soil and water management at the community level. By avoiding monoculture farming and integrating traditional and modern techniques, these practices ensure the health of ecosystems while meeting human needs.

Community-based initiatives, ranging from traditional ethnic movements to modern cooperative economies, form the backbone of sustainable agricultural development.

In essence, the organization advocates for a holistic approach to food systems transformation, rooted in ecological principles and community engagement. By fostering resilience, inclusivity, and environmental stewardship, it strives to create a more sustainable and equitable future for all.

Centre Multifonctionnel de Bepanda pour les personnes socialement vulnérables (CMB)

Nous reconnaissons les défis auxquels le Cameroun est confronté en matière de sécurité alimentaire, en particulier pour les personnes socialement vulnérables, telles que les personnes handicapées et d’autres catégories de personnes défavorisées. Ainsi, nous nous engageons à mettre en place une initiative novatrice pour répondre à ces besoins et favoriser le développement global et l’insertion sociale des bénéficiiaires du Centre Multifonctionnel de Bépanda.

Nous mettons en place une unité de production alimentaire axée sur l’agriculture hors sol. Cette approche permet une utilisation efficace de l’espace limité disponible dans l’environnement urbain de Douala. Elle présente également des avantages tels que :

  • réduction des besoins en eau,
  • minimisation des risques de contamination des sols,
  • production plus prévisible tout au long de l’année.

Notre objectif principal est d’assurer une disponibilité régulière en aliments frais, sains et nutritifs pour nos cibles, en produisant de manière durable et respectueuse de l’environnement.

Dans le cadre de ce projet, nous prévoyons de mettre en place une infrastructure adaptée à l’agriculture hors sol, incluant mini serres, systèmes d’irrigation efficaces et équipements modernes. Nous nous engageons également à fournir du personnel spécialisé qualifié et motivé pour gérer et promouvoir cette unité de production alimentaire.

En créant ce modèle d’agriculture urbaine durable, nous aspirons à être une référence pour d’autres initiatives similaires au Cameroun et au-delà. Nous mettons l’accent sur la sécurité alimentaire, le développement économique local et la protection de l’environnement, afin d’améliorer la qualité de vie des bénéficiaires, renforcer leur autonomie et favoriser leur intégration dans la société.

Nous sommes déterminés à travailler en étroite collaboration avec les acteurs non étatiques, les institutions, les organisations gouvernementales et la société civile pour atteindre nos objectifs communs. Ensemble, nous pouvons transformer les systèmes alimentaires pour le bénéfice des personnes, de la nature et du climat.


Our collective challenge in the agrifood sector is to produce healthy, sustainable, and nutritious food to ensure food security, livelihoods and resilience of small holder farmers, while keeping global temperature levels within 1.5°C to 2°C and halting further environmental degradation.

CGIAR is the world’s largest publicly-funded agricultural research network, with 10,000 staff working in over 80 countries; translating global science to local solutions. For over 50 years, CGIAR has been at the forefront of agricultural research and innovation. With science, we have and we continue to equip small-scale farmers around the world with the know-how and innovations they need to produce more and better food with fewer resources, adapt to changing and challenging environments and, at the same time, protect natural resources and biodiversity.

Investments of $4bn in the next CGIAR research portfolio will harness the power of science and innovation to tackle climate change, increase productivity and build more resilient food systems. For every $1 invested in CGIAR agricultural research and development, investors see $10 worth of benefits to smallholder farmers, vulnerable communities and ecosystems.

The world simply cannot meet the climate and development goals without transforming food systems and CGIAR is committed to leverage its scientific capabilities to help support this transformation.

Christian Aid

Christian Aid works across 17 programmes in 25 countries, focusing on locally-led adaptation, disaster risk reduction, gender justice, agrometeorological services & technical support for agricultural livelihoods & inclusive access to markets. This integrated approach to resilience has informed our work through our local partners with small-scale farmers & herders for over 20 years & continues to guide our support for their transitions to agroecology as per the 13 Principles defined by the HLPE of the CFS.

Their evidence supports our collective learning and advocacy, calling for a whole food system transition to agroecology with at least the same urgency as the needed transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy if the adaptation, mitigation and loss & damage objectives of the Paris Climate Agreement are to be achieved.

This recognises the multiple benefits of agroecology to sustainable productivity improvements, reduced land degradation, enhanced food security, nutrition & health, greater resilience to climate shocks & stresses, reduced emissions & reversing biodiversity & agrobiodiversity loss. If global food security is to survive now unavoidable climate change, all relevant resources (subsidies, R&D, donor and MDB, NGO and private sector) need to be oriented to this change.

Citizens’ Climate International

Citizens’ Climate International empowers citizen volunteer policy advocates to build political will for a livable climate future. We also represent our network of stakeholders from 76 countries in the UNFCCC and other intergovernmental processes. In 2023, we launched a stakeholder-informed NDC Collaborative, aimed at strengthening national climate plans, so they are economy-wide, include all GHGs, consider the needs and priorities of stakeholders, and align with 1.5ºC or better. We then launched a Food, Finance, and Democracy project, to provide volunteer policy advocates with the tools they need to steer policy toward healthy, climate-resilient, investable food systems transformation. These efforts come together in support of a broader Capital to Communities approach to participatory decision-making on climate-related planning and investment and the ongoing reform of international financial structures. We are also tying food systems transformation into our work on the Right to Resilience and non-market multilateral climate cooperation.

Cleantech21 Foundation

We specifically work toward and advocate for a simple, fair, and effective implementation of a price on all GHG emissions, and on non-sustainable land use – as per our mission for an equitable and sustainable market economy.


In response to the COP28 UAE Declaration on Food Systems, Resilient Agriculture and Climate Action, Clim-Eat stands resolute in translating words into impactful action. Acknowledging historical skepticism surrounding initiatives, Clim-Eat pledges a proactive role in delivering tangible outcomes.

In the coming three years, Clim-Eat commits to supporting five African countries in their efforts to improve the resilience of their food systems. Embracing the call to action by non-party stakeholders, Clim-Eat will actively participate and support efforts aimed at driving positive change.

By being boldly constructive, Clim-Eat aims to help break the cycle of unfulfilled declarations, fostering a proactive commitment to meaningful change.

Climate Action Network Uganda

We stand with Global Alliance to call all national leaders and parliamentarians in their respective entities. Food Security and Food Systems is vital, with an eight billion population globally, access to food with nutritional values, is important.

There needs to be a deliberate shift towards ensuring that the system works for all the people. Most especially the vulnerable communities that are facing climate change immensely. Let COP28, be the measure for real tangible results for farmers, with inclusiveness in climate finance distribution and Loss and Damage addressed. We must all take individual responsibility, however the Global North needs to walk the talk. Enough with Declarations; action is needed right now!

Listen to the voices of hungry children, mothers looking for water and food hours to feed their children due to crop failure and climate change crisis; yet billions of dollars are spent in a day in endless wars that grossly affect families. Why is it more important for war machinery to mobilise billions of dollars in one bit; but the same governments fail to mobilise adequately to address Climate Change?

CAN U works with policy makers and grassroot communities to push for legal reforms to address food security in Uganda.

Climate Bonds Initiative

Climate Bonds Initiative (Climate Bonds) is dedicated to driving global capital towards impactful climate action. Our approach is threefold: developing and implementing the Climate Bonds Standard and Certification Scheme, engaging in policy advocacy, and delivering comprehensive market intelligence.

Central to our strategy is the Agri-Food Transition Programme, a vital component of our flagship Transition Programme. This initiative focuses on redirecting financial resources to transform key economic sectors, ensuring their alignment with a net-zero, resilient, and sustainable future. Specifically, we target deforestation and conversion-free agri-food production.

Climate Bonds key actions include:

  1. Agri-Food Criteria Development: Since 2021, we have been formulating criteria for the agri-food sector, encompassing crop and livestock production, deforestation and conversion-free (DCF) practices, and sustainable food supply chains.
  2. Standard and Certification Scheme Expansion: Our scheme offers a robust, science-backed labelling process for diverse sustainability-linked financial instruments. These include entities, assets, bonds, loans, and more, ensuring they align with the Paris Climate Agreement’s 1.5-degree goal.
  3. Global Utilisation and Influence: The scheme is leveraged globally by bond issuers, governments, investors, and financial markets. It prioritises investments that address broader sustainability issues like land use, biodiversity, water management, food waste, circular economy practices, and equitable transition.


 Climate-KIC endorses in full this call to action for Transforming Food Systems for People, Nature, and Climate.

Climate KIC is engaged in systemic transformations that aim to bring our planet back to a less than 1.5 deg path. These transformations include food systems at country scale and at bio-regional scale in partnership with governments, local communities, farmers, businesses, financial institutions, investors, research and policy makers.

Our work is focused on building on large scale and inclusive mobilisation of stakeholders to generate place-based and value-chain based portfolios of interconnected innovation actions which altogether address many barriers and levers of food and land use systems. We try in particular to reconnect producers and consumers to ensure we address the needs of both in a harmonised way. We act on the belief that demonstrating the possibility and benefits of transformation will raise awareness, build confidence and mobilise wider action.

In the near future, we intend to complete our on-going work by financing and implementing the identified portfolios of action, deepening learning, knowledge building practices, skills and capabilities and, based on lessons learnt, use our approach to accelerate transformation of other agri-food systems. We will use our systems change approach to support countries, cities and regions to scale innovations needed to deliver the commitments made at COP28.

Aligning with the Race to Resilience objectives, we will also further deploy tools that contribute to the resilience of smallholder farmers that have been piloted in a few African countries. These tools help smallholders access credit from their local banks and help them implement climate-proof farming practices that increase their resilience. They have been implemented in Tanzania, Zimbabwe and Uganda. Other countries will follow.

Nossa rede considera que a segurança alimentar e o combate à fome são essenciais para promover a prosperidade do Brasil, país entre os mais biodiversos e maiores produtores de alimentos do mundo. A Coalizão dedica esforços à promoção da agricultura sustentável, o aprimoramento de critérios socioambientais para a concessão de crédito rural, a criação de um plano de ação em prol da alimentação saudável e a transferência de tecnologias para descarbonização dos sistemas produtivos de pequenos produtores, entre outros.

A Coalizão teve um papel-chave na elaboração da NDC brasileira em 2015. Defendemos o aumento da ambição climática – que, no Brasil, em boa parte se dará através do combate ao desmatamento e da descarbonização dos sistemas alimentares.


Commonland, is working globally together with local and institutional partners, to realise the Call to Action for Transforming Food Systems for People, Nature, and Climate by providing stakeholders with the 4 Returns framework: a holistic approach to integrated landscape management and restoration. The framework creates clarity, and enables stakeholders with a clear language, tools, monitoring and learning to long term work on realizing sustainable landscapes that provide food, fibers, goods and services that generate inspirational, social, natural and financial returns for decades to come, in such a way that it can be replicated and monitored.

Consumers International

Consumers International – together with our network of more than 200 consumer organisations in over 100 countries worldwide – will continue to bring the voice of the consumer into food systems governance at every level, from local to global.

We will hold governments and businesses accountable to their commitments and responsibilities, while collaborating constructively to build ambition and share solutions. In line with our Action Agenda for Future Food Systems, we will champion efforts to unlock demand-side transformation of food systems; to guarantee the universal right to safe, healthy, and sustainable food; and to break down siloes between food, climate, and nature.

We will empower consumers and communities to be active and influential agents of change. This does not simply mean changing how we consume food, but also acting collectively to claim our right to adequate food, to a healthy planet, to a fair society; and building grassroots food systems solutions from the ground up. This will again involve building bridges – especially with farmers and other frontline food systems actors – to establish local food systems that advance agroecology and food sovereignty, to meet the needs of people and the planet.

COP28 Action Agenda on Regenerative Landscapes

As leading businesses, we continue to advocate for accelerated action to achieve healthy, regenerative, and equitable food systems; a vision we share with ambitious governments and other non-state actors such as landscape initiatives and financiers. As companies, we commit to adopting regenerative agriculture as a solution to transition large agricultural landscapes to regenerative landscapes, and call on our industry peers, governments and all food systems actors to work with us to scale our efforts.

Within our work on the COP28 Action Agenda on Regenerative Landscapes, we commit to share data, at an aggregate level, on our efforts to date and on our future plans to transition towards regenerative landscapes, with the intention to create the transparency and awareness necessary to achieve transformation at scale. We also commit to report against key impact areas relevant for regenerative agriculture and landscapes, including but not limited to soil health, GHG emissions, biodiversity, water, and farmer livelihoods.

Through this multistakeholder, collaborative Action Agenda, we will aggregate, accelerate and amplify existing efforts and new commitments to transition large agricultural landscapes to regenerative landscapes by 2030, putting farmers at the center of the transformation and encouraging a holistic perspective on land management.

Environmental Defense Fund

Climate change is disrupting food production across the globe, putting nutritional security and rural livelihoods at risk. As the planet warms, farmers and fishers are working harder to produce food, and the environmental impacts of food production are increasing. That’s why EDF supports the Call to Action and is working to empower frontline producers in a global food system transformation by:

  1. Accelerating solutions for livestock methane that benefit people’s health, livelihoods, and the planet. We’re expanding the use of existing

methane-reducing methods such as better manure management while also pursuing novel solutions.

  1. Driving science and policy advancements that support climate adaptation. This includes providing financial and technical support needed to transition to more climate-resilient crops and livestock species and supporting

low-carbon aquatic food production from sustainable aquaculture and climate-resilient wild fisheries.

  1. Harnessing data to sustainably manage resources. We are building data platforms, management frameworks and policy pathways to help farmers and fishers proactively manage critical resources.
  2. Making food systems a priority. Food systems have largely been excluded from UN climate negotiations and climate financing— only 4% of which currently flows to food We are ensuring that food finally has a seat at the table and funding is accessible, especially for small-scale producers.

European Carbon Farmers

As part of the European Carbon Farmers’ endorsement of the “Transforming Food Systems for People, Nature, and Climate: a Call to Action”, we submit the following three-fold statement of action. Firstly, we commit to building a farmer-centric bridge between climate and agricultural policies, starting with the EU and the Republic of Poland in particular, specifically through actions towards changing the Common Agricultural Policy of the EU (CAP) from action- to result-based payments as part of the efforts to create the Climate Change Committee.

Secondly, we commit to promoting soil health as the starting point and ultimate goal of any systemic policy-making efforts, especially through supporting the implementation of the EU Soil Mission starting with the creation of the EU Soil Mission Mirror Board and signing the EU Soil Mission Manifesto by the President and Prime Minister of Poland. Third, but not least, we commit to always building bridges, especially within the farming community, by proposing and promoting “carbon farming” – understood as each farmer of the world being a Carbon Farmer – as a tool in order to achieve this.

Farmers’ Seed Network (China)

Farmers’ Seed Network (China) , as a multi-stakeholder group, we hereby declares that we will prioritize the following key actions:

Food, Farming & Countryside Commission

In the next three years, FFCC’s intention is to accelerate food systems change by aligning the strategic leadership in business, finance and governments, and by involving citizens in setting out their ambitions and priorities for fair and sustainable food and farming. Our approach integrates cross-cutting activity (influencing policy change, aligning leadership and amplifying citizen voices) with thematic programmes focusing on food, farming and countryside matters. Now, we are directing our resources towards aligning collective leadership and amplifying citizen voices to accelerate structural change in the food system. Our goal is to shift unhelpful narratives undermining action for change and to demonstrate how citizens want and expect radical and practical action that tackles climate, nature, health and equity crises.

We will demonstrate evidence of citizens’ appetite for a new version of the future where healthy food is everybody’s business. We will continue to build consensus around broad, inclusive pathways towards agroecology. We will curate and help communicate the evidence that supports the agroecological transition. We will continue to move forward proposals for better decisions about land and initiatives promoting prosperous rural communities. Across all of our work, we will examine how money flows to where it is most needed.

Humane Society International

We recognize that there is a need for a more holistic approach to transforming our food systems, addressing not only production practices, but also shifting to more sustainable food consumption patterns. We work directly with food service professionals and institutions around the world to replace a modest amount of animal-sourced meals with plant-based offerings—one of the most effective strategies to mitigate the environmental footprint of the food industry supply chain. This demand-side engagement has been successful in key regions, and to maximize and scale impact, we will work in tandem with supply-side measures, urging policymakers in global, regional and national bodies to recognize the importance of supply-side policies that support and incentivize healthier, more sustainable production and consumption practices.

ICLEI CityFood

The 2030 vision for an ICLEI CityFood city is based on a ‘triple H’ impact approach: Healthy People (ensuring access to healthy and nutritious food), Healthy Landscape (strengthening urban-rural linkages and resilience) and Healthy Climate (designing circular food systems and promoting low-carbon food chains).

ICLEI CityFood’s impact has been supported by various project successes and initiatives across Europe, Africa and Latin America (SchoolFood4Change, AfriFOODLinks, FoodPATHS and FoodCLIC).

In order to assess its impact in cities, CityFood identified 3 indicators along the triple H approach being 1) Cities supported by ICLEI in implementing sustainable public food procurement, in particular healthy meals and food education for every child in every school 2) Cities supported by ICLEI in shifting towards circular and planet-friendly food systems and 3) Number of cities involved in ICLEI projects aiming at building fairer and more resilient food supply chains.

Indigo Ag

Indigo Ag is the sustainable agriculture partner helping farmers and agribusinesses optimize today’s yields and profitability, while nourishing the soil for better tomorrows and helping corporations reach their sustainability goals.

Through its sustainable crop program, Indigo works with major global food & ag value chain brands and has, or is scheduled to, deliver 23M+ bushels of sustainably grown grains through the end of 2024. Indigo has already reduced emissions by more than 20,000 metric tons, saving nearly 7.5 billion gallons of water – securing premiums of up to 10% for farmers who’ve received $2M+ for their sustainably grown crops so far.

Indigo has removed 133,614 metric tons of carbon from the atmosphere and is the only company to complete two carbon harvests. A third is scheduled for early 2024. Indigo’s Carbon program, underpinned by high quality, peer reviewed, science which ensures the robustness of its Measurement, Monitoring, Reporting and Verification capability, has paid nearly $5M to farmers through the sale of credits for each metric ton of carbon stored in their soil. Companies looking to offset their unavoidable emissions and reach net zero commitments have sold out Indigo’s inventory of verified (by the Climate Action Reserve) registry-issued agricultural carbon credits.

Mulloon Institute

All life needs water, landuse changes and clearing have left our landscapes desiccated and fragile, unable to withstand climate extremes. The Mulloon

Institute works with rural communities, First Nations people and government to rehydrate and restore landscapes across Australia.

Our work is recognised by the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network as a demonstrator of sustainable, productive and profitable farming.

Landscape Rehydration Infrastructure includes contours, earth banks and leaky weirs, made with natural materials and accompanied by revegetation and regenerative agricultural management. It restores broken water cycles, reconnects streams and rivers with floodplains, to hold water in the landscape rebuilding productive, spongy wet floodplains full of biodiversity, greening up and cooling down landscapes across Australia.

We will continue to seek funding to: partner with communities to use LRI to rebuild demonstration sites of landscapes resilient to climate extremes across Australia, develop a methodology to measure the success of LRI and enable farmers to connect to natural capital markets, continue the role out of our national education and capacity building program, and our call for regulatory reform to support landscape repair, role out our spatial CREST model to guide scaling of this approach across Australia.

Natural Capitalism Solutions

We are working with organizations globally to encourage a shift to regenerative agriculture, local production, support for small-holder farmers and use of renewable energy in the agriculture sector. Agriculture is now a major contributor to global warming. Regenerative agriculture has shift agriculture to being half the solution to the climate crisis.


At Nestlé we believe in unlocking the power of food to enhance quality of life now and for generations to come. We know that farming differently and changing the way we eat are critical to achieving the goals of the Paris agreement. That’s why we support the Non-State Actors Call to Action to transform food systems for people, nature, and climate.

We will do so by implementing high-ambition commitments that contribute to food systems transformation. These goals, outlined in our Net Zero Roadmap, include reducing our absolute emissions by 50% this decade, even as our company grows and reducing and eliminating the risk of deforestation in key supply chains. It also covers sourcing 50% of key ingredients through regenerative agriculture methods by 2030.

We are already working on hundreds of projects around the world, including collaborations with suppliers, project implementers and local communities. Key to success is our work with farmers – whether small holders or large landowners – striving for a just transition, placing producers at its heart. Our actions are guided by our Human Rights Framework.

We hope the Non-State Actor Call to Action helps scale up our impact and ensures others match this level of ambition and investment.

NeverEndingFood Permaculture

NeverEndingFood is our home and community-based permaculture demonstration in Chitedze, Malawi where we use and showcase many low-input, high impact ecological technologies for organic agriculture, water, sanitation, food and seed multiplication, processing, storing and sharing, sustainable energy, and much more. We have reached thousands of visitors in surrounding villages and a wide variety of organizations locally and internationally, we support an internship programme for out community to certify interested people in Permaculture, and we partner with universities to host student attachments and conduct online sessions.

Novolyze remains committed to working with other stakeholders to transform food systems for people, nature, and climate. We believe that together, we can create a more sustainable and equitable food system for all.

NYC Mayor’s Office of Food Policy

The New York City Mayor’s Office of Food Policy is committed to a food system that supports people, nature, and the climate. To achieve this goal, we will continue to advance our 10-year Food Forward policy plan. One key pillar is using our city agencies’ food purchases to decrease chronic disease, support New York State and Minority and Women-owned businesses and reduce our food-related greenhouse gas emissions by 33% by 2030. Our goal is to provide vulnerable New Yorkers (in homeless shelters, older adult centers, schools, detention facilities, hospitals, and more) with nutritious, sustainable, culturally relevant meals and to train the city’s culinary workers to prepare delicious, plant-based meals. We will also equip our youngest with knowledge about the connections between food, health, and the environment by implementing the Food Education Roadmap. In addition, we will investigate the impact of our city as a consumer of food and a generator of food waste, which just started to be included in our emissions evaluations. Finally, we will share our progress via the Food Forward NYC policy plan reports. This statement is non-binding.

OCP Group

As the leading global plant nutrition company, OCP recognises the urgent need to drive a global transition towards sustainable agriculture, while simultaneously investing across its own supply chain to ensure that it is carbon neutral (All Scope) by 2040. OCP recognises the need to radically change the way we farm, helping farmers to adopt more sustainable practices to achieve zero hunger while combatting climate change and improving local communities’ livelihoods.

With increasing pressure on the world’s available arable land from climate change and population growth, rebalancing our soils is essential. By keeping soils healthy, including through customised fertilisers that are tailored to each crop, soil and local climate, and by ensuring that these are being applied at the right time, in the right place and at the right rate, farmers can play a decisive role not only to decarbonise agriculture, but also to sequester carbon, while improving both crop yields and the nutritional value of food.

OCP is developing the science, technology and products to improve soil health and accelerate a just transition to climate positive agriculture and make food systems more resilient, fair and sustainable globally; moving from the indiscriminate application of macro-nutrients to precision solutions.

As the continent with the fastest growing population, the greatest crop yield potential, and a large proportion of the world’s unused arable land, Africa has to kickstart, drive and champion the agricultural transition.

One Earth

Since 2017 One Earth has developed and funded scientific research to advance solutions to the climate crisis across three pillars of action — renewable energy transition, nature conservation/restoration, and regenerative agriculture. We have worked to advance regenerative agriculture solutions through our project marketplace that indexes and channels funds to 45+ nonprofit projects around the world supporting regenerative food and fibre production. We’ve released online media and editorial to explain the benefits of regenerative agriculture, and we are funding a geospatial modeling initiative housed at University of Minnesota, which utilizes high resolution data to design an optimized regenerative food system to feed 10 billion people by mid-century without the need for further land conversion. The new One Earth climate model to be released Spring 2024 will provide the basis for a global taxonomy of climate solutions across the three pillars of action, indexing 30 regenerative agriculture solutions pathways — from strategies to increase carbon storage on croplands and sustainable rangeland solutions to food waste/loss reduction and circular fibers sheds. A curriculum will be developed to explain each pathway in depth, and provide case studies for each solution in diverse geographies, along with social media video and other educational assets.

Paulig Group

Paulig is a family-owned, international food and drink company. Placed right in the middle of the food value chain we are influencing both directions within to drive sustainable food systems transformation – one that is good for both people and the planet at the same time.

Paulig has already taken bold actions to deliver our ambitious science-based climate targets through innovation collaboration across value chains. Examples of the key transformational actions and progress include:

  • 70% of Paulig’s net sales to come from products and services which enable the health and well-being of people and the planet by 2030.
  • 5C aligned, SBTi validated GHG reduction targets: -80% from own operations and
  • 50% from our value chain by Work currently ongoing to define specific, science based targets for Nature
  • 100% of raw materials from high-risk areas to come from sustainable sources verified by external parties by 2030 – increasing transparency and supportive actions to improve the farmer livelihoods

Paulig has also launched a unique climate fund to accelerate emission reductions in our value chain to collaborate in long-term transformation approaches with our partners and suppliers to reduce GHG emissions and improve biodiversity.

Examples of actions include supporting sustainable cultivation methods, regenerative farming practices and circular economy. Current projects focus on wheat, coffee and logistics value chains with expansion projects planned in corn value chains.

Pegasus Capital Advisors

Pegasus is pleased to commit to pioneering investments totaling over US$350M that will scale sustainable agricultural systems and ocean health, driving food security, restoring sustainable water management and fisheries, and transitioning global supply chains to create sophisticated models for food and water systems that empower and open markets for regenerative, small holder and bio-diverse systems. As part of the Subnational Climate Fund (SCF) and Global Fund for Coral Reefs (GFCR), we have a portfolio of projects under consideration that look to invest infrastructure which has the potential to impact over a million vulnerable small farmers, including empowering over 250,000 women in West Africa, building critical infrastructure capability such as cold storage in North and West Africa, potable water distribution systems in Cambodia, agroforestry in Jamaica, seaweed processing in Mexico and the Caribbean, as well as restoring critical commodity production into sustainable and efficient agricultural systems in South and Central America, and the Caribbean. The dedicated technical assistance facilities of SCF and GFCR as well as the Africa Adaptation Initiative (AAI) Food Security Accelerator will support investment readiness, capacity building, environmental and social impact management and measurement of these projects through the partnerships with UNCDF, UNDP, IUCN, IICA, Catalytic Finance Foundation, among others. All these projects will have direct impact on Sustainable Development targets, especially reduction of potential of upwards of 30M in carbon emissions, as they simultaneously look to restore economic activities and food & water security in the Global South.

Philanthropic Collaboration for Renegerative and Agroecological Transitions

Twenty-four leading philanthropies call for a tenfold increase in funding for regenerative and agroecological transitions to address urgent global agricultural and environmental challenges. Together these philanthropies urge that to align food systems with the 1.5ºC goal of the Paris Agreement there is a need to phase out fossil fuel use, especially fossil fuel–based agrochemicals in industrial agriculture, and transition toward agroecology and regenerative approaches.

Assessing what is required for a systems transformation to agroecology and regenerative approaches globally, they determined the financing required, defined barriers to change, and identified pathways, systemic drivers, and investment strategies to accelerate the transformation. In the six months following COP28, this initiative will co-design implementation plans for the priority acceleration levers to unlock financing and accelerate transition pathways with landscape advisors in key geographies. Investment at the scale proposed would mean half of all food produced could be regenerative and agroecological by 2040, and all would be transitioning to more sustainable approaches by 2050. The return on investment would be high and exponential. This commitment leverages philanthropic leadership to create enabling environments for agroecology, regenerative approaches, and Indigenous foodways to flourish.

Plant Based Treaty is advocating for a safe and just plant-based transition along with rewilding in order to stay within our planetary boundaries. We provide support and resources for institutions to help them transform menus with plant-based options and defaults.


Pollination is focused on unlocking climate, development, philanthropic, and private sector finance to accelerate scaling of regenerative food systems, particularly in developing economies, where the livelihoods of smallholder farmers, rural prosperity, and food security are most threatened by climate change and nature loss. Regenerative and agroecological food systems hold the key to sustainably feeding a growing population within planetary boundaries. Our focus and commitment is to unlock finance at scale to accelerate transformation, so that by 2030, regenerative systems are the norm.


Proforest is committed to supporting governments, companies and communities in a just transition to the responsible production and sourcing of agricultural commodities. Our work across Southeast Asia, Africa, Europe, South and North America, is driven by our mission to create positive impacts for people, nature and climate.

As a mission-driven non-profit we are aligned with the Non-State Actors Call to Action for Transforming Food Systems for People, Nature, and Climate. The way we work within and beyond supply chains, with a strong belief in collaboration, capacity building and local ownership, is reflected in many of the critical actions.

In particular, our work will continue to focus on smallholders, to ensure inclusion in a global food system, improved resilience to climate risks and improved livelihoods. This includes building capacity in regenerative agriculture and sustainable land management. We commit to work with stakeholders so that communities can produce food for themselves as well as commercial commodities, without harming biodiversity and natural resources including forests.

Respect for people, through gender and social inclusion, as well as Free, Prior and Informed Consent for Indigenous Peoples, will continue to be embodied in our work with companies, governments, and multi-stakeholder platforms we support, such as the Africa Sustainable Commodities Initiative and Consumer Goods Forum Forest Positive Coalition.

Stanford Center for Ocean Solutions

The Stanford Center for Ocean Solutions welcomes and supports the Non-State Actors “Action for Transforming Food Systems for People, Nature and Climate: A Share Call to Action” at COP28 and beyond. Transforming our food systems is critical to meet the Paris Agreement, safeguard food and nutrition security, and build a sustainable, climate-resilient, and equitable future for people and the planet. Over 300 million people around the world depend on the oceans for their livelihoods, and over three billion people rely on oceans for food security. But ocean and freshwater ecosystems face challenges – from climate change impacts, to overfishing and pollution – that compromise their health and contribution to our food systems. The Stanford Center for Ocean Solutions contributes to and supports the shared 2030 vision by catalyzing research, innovation, and action to improve blue food system health. We commit to this global multi-stakeholder effort by working in partnership across sectors to deliver the latest science to inform evidence-based decision-making. We conduct action-oriented research and fill gaps in our understanding of the ocean-climate-food system nexus. We will continue to work in partnership with research institutions, non-governmental organizations, the private sector, and governments to enable a just food systems transformation.

Stronger Foundations for Nutrition

Stronger Foundations for Nutrition, the global philanthropic community fighting to end malnutrition, commits to engage our philanthropic members in coordinated advocacy and action towards sustainable and nutritious food systems, and towards more resilient health and social protection systems for vulnerable populations. We will work in partnership with others in philanthropy and beyond to ensure nutrition priorities are central in – and in support of – broader goals of people, nature and climate.

Support for Women in Agriculture and Environment


Adverse effects of climate change are already apparent in some regions and the eventual effect in all regions is likely to be very negative. Increasing resilience of food systems must be done at every level, from the field to landscape and markets. It generally involves a comprehensive set of actions which have to be coordinated. Farmers and food producers alone cannot adapt successfully to climate change. They need support from the government and from the private sector, and there is also an important role for civil society organizations.

Climate-change adaptation will certainly require new practices and changes in the livelihood strategies of most if not all food producers as well as other actors throughout the food chain, involving farmers, retailers and intermediaries in the food chain, agri-business and the financial sector.

Adaptation measures have to be specific to local circumstances. Climate change adaptation must consider socially disadvantaged groups, gender differences and in particular the role of women as decision makers in food systems. In this regard, Support for Women in Agriculture and Environment (SWAGEN) is undertaking specific actions in alignment with the Call to Action’s objectives. The organization’s strategy is to promote community-led initiatives that support farmers and frontline food systems actors to enhance their absorptive, adaptive and resilient capacities to climate risks and other shocks and stresses. The organization will carry out demand-driven research to generate and share relevant and accurate information about climate change, and documenting traditional knowledge on responses to climate risks. SWAGEN will be hands-on in conserving forests as watersheds, and promoting agroecology as the sustainable model of agriculture that delivers not only food security but food sovereignty. The organization will call for seed banks at community level and storage of food reserves in silos as insurance against hunger.

Sustainability Impact Network Africa

We, the Sustainability Impact Network Africa, commit to the Call to Action to launch a Non-State Actors Call to Action for Transforming Food Systems for People, Nature, and Climate. We will specifically seek to work with farmers in Africa on climate-smart agriculture initiatives, specifically those geared towards farming oil crops for sustainability. We will continue to increase the number of farmers participating in the system of farmer field schools that we run across the continent and the promotion of growing drought-resistant food and tree crops.

Syngenta Foundation for Sustainable Agriculture

We work with smallholder farmers in developing countries. The role of smallholder farmers in mitigating climate change is crucial; however, their primary need lies in receiving support for climate adaptation. Smallholders suffer more than almost anyone else from weather extremes and degradation of ecosystem health caused by climate change. So far, the global community has invested very little climate funding in this area. This must change. At COP28 and beyond, our Foundation will be doing all it can to forge new action coalitions.

These will focus on enabling smallholders to adapt better to climate change. That will help them to continue growing the crops that they, their communities and the wider world all need for food security and rural prosperity. Want to know more about the Foundation? www.syngentafoundation.org. Like to join us in improving smallholders’ livelihoods and resilience? syngenta.foundation@syngenta.com

The Egyptian Bio-Dynamic Association – EBDA

The Egyptian biodynamic association (EBDA) is the largest organic and biodynamic farmers association in Egypt as it supports farmers in Egypt to shift from conventional practices to organic, and biodynamic agriculture. It owns and develops the EoL standard, which includes governance, certification criteria, and an online platform for tracing and carbon registration. The EoL Management System follows ISO 17067 guidelines. Through EBDA, farmers were able register a great additional income through the implementation of EoL carbon. Economy of Love (EoL) scheme is a promising solution for climate change challenges.

Agriculture could be a part of the solution. EBDA started an initiative for upscaling organic farming in Egypt by supporting 40,000 farmers in transition to organic and biodynamic farming, earning carbon credits from their ecosystem service as well as increasing the livelihoods of local communities. The initiative consists of 4 phases. 2 are completed and currently, Phase 3, aims to enroll 40,000 small-holder farmers in the EoL CC scheme by 2025. This involves planting 11.3 m trees, produce 2 m tons compost, cultivate 250K acres, install 250 MWp of solar panels to cut irrigation emissions. Phase 4 plans to enroll 250,000 farmers by 2028.

The Farm of Francesco

As part of the Farm of Francesco’s endorsement of the “Transforming Food Systems for People, Nature, and Climate: a Call to Action”, we submit our two-fold Statement of Action: 1. To listen and co-create side by side with farmers from Global South and Global North alike transformational real-life experiences combining regenerative agriculture, business and spirituality and 2. From this and responding to the call of Pope Francis in Laudato Si, Fratelli Tutti and Laudate Deum, develop specific opportunities for impactful participation of the farmers in global processes, specifically in the UNFCCC COP, but also in the UN FSS and the CFS. We do this to support farmers responding to the cry of the Earth and the cry of the Poor. Thus turning climate policy into an integral policy of social action.

The Food Foundation

Our mission is changing food policy and business practice to ensure everyone, across the UK nations, can afford and access a healthy and sustainable diet. We are policy entrepreneurs and use surprising and inventive ideas to catalyse and deliver fundamental change in the food system by building and synthesising strong evidence, shaping powerful coalitions, harnessing citizens’ voices and driving progress with impactful communications.

Our work is centred around the following main pillars:

  • Improving children’s diets: we work to ensure all children can access a healthy diet.
  • Increasing vegetable consumption: we work with over 100 businesses and cities to change the environment so that veg is more available, affordable and accessible.
  • Influencing food policy: we support leaders to transform food
  • Inspiring change in food businesses and investments: we help make the food industry more transparent so that investors and policymakers can spot the leaders and the laggards.

Through our work we will prioritize critical actions that support the Call to Action on Transforming Food Systems for People, Nature, and Climate, and commit to monitor and report annually on our efforts to progress the food systems transformation priorities contained in the Call to Action.

The Food System Resiliency Table

The Table is a place where community leaders work together to: Learn lessons from the pandemic and resist the attempt to return to business as usual; Continue with building and supporting a food system transformation that builds resilience at all levels; Ensure that diverse groups of people are leading from their lived experience and active in building a resilient food system for all; and to Support the transition to a circular food economy that is designed with equity, prosperity and sustainability at the core.

The Global FoodBanking Network

The Global FoodBanking Network (GFN) provides food to people in need, while reducing food loss and waste and the associated greenhouse gas emissions. By collecting and redistributing surplus food from food producers and retailers, GFN and its global network, operating in 50 countries, are actively contributing to reduce food loss and waste. In 2022, GFN and its member food banks served over 32 million people—more than 4 times the reach from the pre-COVID era. Through these efforts, we helped avoid 1.5 billion kilograms of CO2e.

Working with our partners around the world, GFN is the only global organization that currently recovers and redistributes surplus food at scale. These activities bring multiple benefits to people and communities, including improving food security, nutrition, resilience, and the environment.

In the coming years, we will continue to scale our impact in order to meet the interconnected goals of expanding food access and reducing emissions that cause climate change. GFN has a “north star” goal of providing food access to 50 million people by 2030.

The Good Food Institute

The Good Food Institute (GFI) is implementing the CtA by acting as a field catalyst for the alternative protein (AP) ecosystem. Developing AP sources that are nutritious, affordable, and tasty is critical to ensuring a transition to more diversified sources of protein (action #4). This work is needed to align food systems with 1.5°C (action #2) and to halt and reverse loss of important ecosystems (action #8).

One way GFI acts as a field catalyst is by fostering a strong open-access AP research and training ecosystem. In 2024, GFI aims to grow the size of the scientific workforce, as measured by 50 institutions (including 5+ within LMICs) establishing a new mechanism for guiding talent into the field.

GFI influences the public sector to support APs, with 2024 goals of $450M in public funding awarded globally to AP research and 20 governments making R&D investment commitments via multilateral framework agreements (e.g., Aim4Climate).

Finally, GFI influences the private sector to support APs by working with manufacturers, retailers, and foodservice companies to adopt protein diversification commitments, as highlighted in the Protein Transition Call to Action.

GFI publicly shares information on AP science, policy, and industry, and publicizes our organizational progress through our Year-in-Review.

The Inga Foundation USA

The Inga Foundation pioneers the revolutionary agricultural system of Inga Alley Cropping to address environmental and food insecurity problems. Since 2012, the Inga Foundation’s simple, regenerative agroforestry system of Inga Alley Cropping in Honduras has transformed the lives and livelihoods of 450 subsistence farming families—empowering them and trained and assisted by an all-Honduran team of foresters, agronomists and field and nursery staff—planting over 4 million trees.

The ability of the resilient Inga tree to anchor, enrich, and regenerate depleted soil provides 100% food security. Climate-resilient Inga tree alleys provide the basic grains (corn/beans), organic cash crops as well as significantly reduce global carbon emissions, protect wildlife and marine habitats, preserve water sources and yield a year’s worth of renewable firewood.

All crops are grown without herbicides, pesticides, chemical fertilizers, or heavy equipment. The Inga alleys survive months of drought, stop erosion and mudslides, and save animals and watersheds. This low-input, debt-free, and bottom-up program gives families the means to achieve “land for life.” The Inga Tree model fulfills 11 of the 17 SDGs with NO negative impact whatsoever.

The Just Rural Transition Secretariat

The JRT initiative was launched at the United Nations Climate Action Summit in 2019 to create a global community of practice on the evidence, perspectives and approaches that can help drive a just transition to sustainable agriculture and food systems. JRT works with partners to advance inclusive policy action and build support for approaches towards food systems transformation that centre farmers and are based on Just Food System Transition Principles. JRT provides a knowledge hub of policy briefs, case studies, and toolkits that will help decision  makers access information that makes the case for action, informs design policy approaches and supports implementation. In addition, JRT brings together key stakeholders including farmers, pastoralists, fishers and other food producers to share experiences and identify opportunities to scale up sustainable agriculture and food systems including through repurposing policy and public support. JRT’s dialogues support an inclusive engagement process, helping to build support with key constituencies and enabling governments to move forward with policy reform.

The Nature Conservancy

The Nature Conservancy (TNC) is proud to support 11 landscapes initiatives that showcase the diversity of partnerships between food systems, nature and climate around the world. By developing this portfolio representing the diversity of geographic and food production archetypes, The Nature Conservancy is creating a set of living laboratories that can be replicated and scaled for collective global impact.

TNC aims to support beneficial transitions in these landscapes from business-as-usual food production to regenerative systems that meet climate, biodiversity and human welfare goals. By 2030, we expect over 90 million hectares to begin this transition process – an area twice the size of California – supporting 2.1 million producers.

The initiatives will impact some of the world’s most critical landscapes for people and nature, such as the Orinoquia region in Colombia, the Mississippi River Basin in US, the Central Highlands of Kenya, the Northwest region in India, among others. By working with local communities and through a systems-level and science-based approach, TNC aims to catalyze a regenerative transition in this portfolio of landscape initiatives.

At the global level, The Nature Conservancy wants to influence success by building coalitions and continuously learning, adapting and replicating what works —while balancing pace and scale with equity and inclusion of local communities

The Power of Nutrition

The Power of Nutrition is a global not-for-profit organisation that builds partnerships with businesses, governments and civil society to create sustainable nutrition-centred programmes that support mothers and children in Africa and Asia. Undernutrition is an underlying factor in 45 percent of deaths in children under the age of five. Climate change will only make this number rise. Through our wide-ranging partnerships and in line with the Call To Action, we will strengthen our commitment to ensure that all our programmes can adapt, and be resilient to, changes in the climate. We will promote local leadership to help increase food availability that meets the nutritional needs of communities, continuing to recognise the role of women in helping to make healthy food both accessible and affordable.

The Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP)

WRAP will prioritize critical actions to:

  1. Continue working on public-private partnerships around the world like Courtauld Commitment, GRASP 2030 and others, to share knowledge and good practices amongst countries on collaborative actions, and measurement and reporting across food chains to reduce food waste, water stress and greenhouse gas emissions.
  2. Continue working closely with UNEP, Champions 12.3, the EU platform on food losses and food waste and other partners on the achievement of SDG 12.3 and promoting the circularisation of food systems.
  1. Continue working with countries such as the UK, Mexico, Indonesia and South Africa on preventing FLW at source, working with retailers, manufacturers, hospitality, redistribution organisations and public sector to remove barriers to surplus food redistribution, investing in redistribution capacity and measuring and reporting changes.
  2. Continue and expand our international work on citizens behaviour change, with campaigns such as ‘Love Food, Hate Waste’ that can be adapted to the different countries to influence the reduction of FW and the adoption of healthy eating and low carbon diets.
  3. Continue and expand our work on water stewardship around the world through collective action projects such as in the UK, Spain, South Africa, Kenya, and Peru working with local experts developing catchment-specific plans to tackle key water risks in high volume sourcing areas for the UK’s food and drink supply.
  4. Continue supporting countries and partners around the world to access funds and resources to implement food systems transformation

True Value of Food Initiative

The main objective of this initiative is to unlock the potential of the True Value of Food for governments, businesses, investors, and consumers by providing them with a new economic basis for decision-making. The hidden environmental, health, and economic costs in current food systems exact a significant detrimental impact on the planet and society. True Cost Accounting, and interventions developed in response to TCA findings, can enhance the value of food systems and their ability to address climate change and other global crises.

The True Value of Food Initiative leverages key milestone events and networks to

  • raise awareness of food systems’ hidden costs;
  • amplify TCA frameworks, tools, research, and case studies, as well as successful business and policy interventions to maximize the True Value of Food; and
  • connect interested governments with appropriate implementation “

VegTech Invest

VegTech Invest is committed to impact investing through its public markets ETF in sustainable food systems transformation through protein diversification and innovation. It does this for people, nature and climate, as well as investors.

Walton Family Foundation

The Walton Family Foundation aims to shift food production systems to ensure there is sufficient healthy, available water for people and nature to thrive in the face of climate change. Our funding will support solutions in three geographies: the Colorado River Basin, the Mississippi River Basin and our Oceans.

World Business Council for Sustainable Development

As leading businesses, we continue to advocate for accelerated action to achieve sustainable food systems; a vision we share with ambitious governments and other non-state actors. While progress to date is welcome, it is insufficient. To deliver the step change in ambition needed, the following strategies must underpin our collective efforts. As companies, we commit to adopting these across our operations and value chains, and call on our industry peers, governments and non-state actors to work with us to drive their wide scale adoption.

Leverage the food sector’s unique capabilities, including mitigating climate change through both emissions reductions and removals, while building resilience. With land-based emissions dominating the sector’s greenhouse gas footprint, as businesses we must set scope 3 targets and urgently scale in-value chain interventions in line with the 1.5 degree pathway.

Take a systemic approach, given the sector’s position at the nexus of multiple interrelated imperatives including food and nutrition security, livelihoods, biodiversity and climate change. As part of their sustainability transition businesses must address inequality across all stages of the value chain, co-creating solutions with farmers and other stakeholders, to strengthen food and nutrition security, and build nature-positive supply chains.

Integrate food system sustainability across decision-making. Our core business functions such as finance, risk and procurement should specifically target sustainability outcomes.

Strengthen accountability, improving corporate performance and building trust. Businesses must disclose sustainability performance through established channels, building the data systems required and contributing knowledge to ongoing efforts to harmonize methodologies, standards and reporting requirements, including in complex areas such as scope 3, living incomes and nutrition, needed to incentivize food system investments.

Utilize the power of multistakeholder collaboration, to address interdependencies and deliver our shared vision. To build alignment at all levels as businesses we must adopt best practice in stakeholder consultation and responsible policy engagement principles, while contributing to multistakeholder action.

World Farmers Organisation

Farmers are at the heart of Food Systems. Farmers are ready to partner with the other actors in the value chain, as well as with other private and public stakeholders to run together an effective path towards sustainability. The partnership-based approach promoted in the NSA CTA will allow the actors in the Food Systems to invest together in win win solutions where Farmers are no longer the target but co-creators and co-developers of policies and programs at national level, through their national Farmers Organisations. Also, Farmers organisations are keen to partner with governments for the design and implementation of the Food Systems National pathways, the NDCs and the NAPs.


WWF is actively working on food systems transformation in countries, landscapes, seascapes and riverscapes around the world, and is ready to help translate ambitious global climate commitments into national-level action.

Our place-based approach is simple. First, using our Solving the Great Food Puzzle methodology and typology, identify the highest impact actions and pair them with policies (including ambitious NDCs) that will work in countries and the world’s most biologically diverse landscapes and ecosystems, based on local environmental, social, political and economic conditions. Second, pair these actions with the right innovation, for the right impact in the right place, using our innovation framework. Third, leveraging our presence in more than 100 countries, work with local stakeholders and communities to build a robust ecosystem of support that can scale implementation on the ground and in the water, especially places with the most vulnerable socio-economic and environmental contexts.

This approach connects food-based climate action with the protection and restoration of nature, and ensuring that everyone has enough healthy and nutritious food. We believe the solutions that will deliver most impact in the shortest time are integrated across the issues of nature, climate, and food and nutrition security, delivering multiple benefits to multiple stakeholders.

Young Emerging Farmers Initiative (YEFI)

YEFI will focus on empowering frontline food systems actors, with a particular emphasis on women and youth. Our actions will include providing them with decision-making agency, acknowledging and rewarding their contributions to sustainable food production, and ensuring they operate within planetary boundaries. YEFI commits to promoting a just transition, advancing equitable livelihoods, engaging stakeholders and rights-holders meaningfully, and addressing land and resource tenure for marginalized groups. We recognize and respect the rights of Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities, including their rights to Free, Prior, and Informed Consent, land, and self-determination. YEFI will actively participate in multi-stakeholder collaboration, fostering learning, exchange, and coordination with other Non-State Actors and Governments.

Furthermore, YEFI acknowledges the vital role of National Governments in food systems transformation and commits to supporting the implementation of the Emirates Declaration on Sustainable Agriculture, Resilient Food Systems, and Climate Action. We call on Governments to strengthen their NDCs, reorient agricultural policies, and create the enabling conditions necessary for the achievement of our shared vision. YEFI commits to annually monitor and report on our efforts to progress food systems transformation priorities until 2030. We are ready to collaborate with Governments and other Non-State Actors to lead this ambitious agenda, unlocking the potential of food systems as a solution for people, nature, and climate.
