Agencies of the United Nations (UN) have called for a sweeping review of global support to farmers that are making the planet warmer and also keeping it away from attaining the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. This is ahead of the Food Systems Summit that will take place September 23, 2021.
On September 14, three UN agencies - Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), UN Development Programme (UNDP) and UN Environment Programme (UNEP) - released A multi-billion-dollar opportunity: Repurposing agricultural support to transform food systems .
The report analysed countries' support to farmers and the consequent adverse impacts on food prices, environment, global warming and farmers, specifically smallholders.
