A scientific blueprint to tackle climate, biodiversity and pollution

This synthesis report by the United Nations Environment Programme examines how climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution can be tackled as part of the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals, including by transforming food, water and energy systems.

Table readers may be particularly interested in the following sections of the report:

  • P61 for a breakdown of the uses of land.
  • P71-74 for a discussion of land degradation.
  • P80 and 90-92 for risks to food security from different types of environmental degradation.
  • Table 5.1 on p105 for how food relates to the leverage points for change identified by the report.
  • P111-112 for measures to transform land management to meet the needs of humanity, biodiversity and the climate, including better cropland and grazing management, dietary change that minimises the requirement for new cropland, and reduction of food waste.
  • P120-123 for policies to transform food systems to be equitable and resilient.
