“Our actions are our future. Better production, better nutrition, A better environment and a better life”

By: Mical Tesfay
We are living in a world where millions of people are hungry or undernourished, while large numbers are chronically overweight due to poor diets. While millions of people go hungry, vast qualities of food are lost every day, either spoiled during production or transport or thrown into the waste bins of households, retailers, or restaurants. Up to 10 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions are associated with food that is not consumed. Food waste is filling up the world’s landfills, where it decomposes and generates methane, a greenhouse gas that is harmful than carbon dioxide. The planet will need to support 10 billion people by 2050, placing even greater pressure on natural resources, the environment, and the climate. Even at a current level, food production often comes at an unacceptably high price, degrading or destroying natural habitats, contributing to species extinction, and costing trillions of dollars in lost and wasted resources. However, the good news is that there is plenty that can be done to adjust the situation, and put us and the planet back on the right path.
