Climate change, halting deforestation and biodiversity loss and sustainable food systems demand wide societal support for change. We therefore need to work in partnerships with governments, private sector, civil society organizations, farmers, and Indigenous Peoples’ organizations. The event shared lessons and discussed challenges regarding collaboration and inclusive action.
The speakers underlined the urgency to act now. Working in partnerships inspires and is key for the action. The overall message of the event was that we need to move from specific initiatives to systemic, inclusive action.
