Food for 1.5: healthy diets for a sustainable future - Unlocking the potential of plant-based solutions

The side event will highlight the ways we can transform our broken food system into one that is fair, inclusive and sustainable. Participants will discuss solutions that harness the potential of plant-based diets and protein diversification as tools to mitigate the climate crisis, as well as to promote health. Recognizing that food systems involve a diversity of actors, the aim of the side event is to showcase concrete solutions that not only seek to tackle the climate crisis but also consider the needs of those disproportionately affected by climate change and food insecurity. 

Drawing from the conversations that emerged from the SB58 side event, “Unlocking the Potential of Alternative Proteins for Food Systems Transformation”, and the Food Systems Stocktaking Moment, “Food for 1.5: healthy diets for a sustainable future; Unlocking the potential of plant-based solutions” calls for policy makers heading to COP28 to recognize the urgent need to transform food systems and dramatically accelerate action if they are to create a sustainable and resilient future.
