Tag your government and ask how they are supporting and scaling up the work of communities towards sustainable production.

(Tag local or national government leader), how are you supporting and investing in community action towards sustainable production. Support nature positive solutions. #NatureForLife 2021. www.natureforlifehub.org.


To increase ambition on resilient food systems – we must:

  1. Diversify our food systems, including diversity of genetic stocks, cultivars, and crops.
  2. Recognize, maintain and scale up traditional food systems knowledge, Indigenous food systems.

To transform our supply chains – we must:

  1. Eliminate deforestation from supply chains, especially from beef, soy, palm oil and pulp and papers.
  2. Leverage 4th industrial technologies to transform supply chains.
  3. Invest in sustainable supply chains, including invest in communities, and sustainable long-term agreements.
