Transforming food systems on a global scale is one of the single most important things that need to happen in order to meet Agenda 2030 goals and to steer away from the worst climate change scenarios.

This transformation needs to be guided by scientific knowledge about boundaries of ecosystems on different scales. In BSR, we need for example to be aware of the planetary boundaries and the boundaries of the Baltic sea. We also need to take into account the need to use less arable land/person and year for food production if, to make it possible to feed the growing world population. Sharing arable land equitably provides each person with 2000m2 for food production. Read more here.
