Food Systems and Natural Resources

image of Food Systems and Natural Resources

For thousands of years, nature has gracefully provided the necessary inputs to feed us, and we have in many occasions taken these precious gifts for granted. This report, “Food Systems and Natural Resources” is an effort to account for these inputs, looking at how we are using and managing them, the consequences of that management and the options to improve the efficiency with which they are managed.




We are what we eat, they say. Our existence and, therefore, any of the aspirations we might have as a society depend on the availability of, and access to, food. At the same time, our food depends directly on the state of our natural resources. The food we grow, harvest, trade, transport, store, sell and consume is therefore one of the essential connecting threads between people, their culture and wellbeing, and the health of our planet.
