From the Sustainable Development Goals to national nutrition targets, the proliferation of national and global sustainability goals in recent decades reflects the growing urgency of achieving healthy diets while staying within planetary boundaries. As the pledges and commitments multiply, however, how can we be sure that they are not counteracting each other? Is it possible for countries to minimize trade-offs across the water–energy–food–ecosystems nexus and achieve both national and international goals?
NEXUS Gains’ latest webinar, ‘Country-driven nexus food and land use system pathways to achieve global goals’, set out to answer these urgent questions. Held on Thursday, June 29, the hour-long event took an in-depth look at the work of the Food, Agriculture, Biodiversity, Land Use, and Energy (FABLE) Consortium to develop long-term pathways for sustainable food and land-use systems. It was hosted by Dr Fabrice DeClerck, a senior scientist at the Alliance of Bioversity International and CIAT and science director at the non-profit organization, EAT. The webinar featured three FABLE country teams: Mexico, India and Colombia.
