Who We Are
The Food and Climate Alliance envisions a future global food system that is healthy for people and the planet.
The Alliance seeks to integrate dietary shifts into climate policies and practices, among public and private institutions at local, national, and global levels.
We do this by:
- Amplifying the urgency of addressing food consumption trends to meet international climate commitments;
- Sharing resources with key stakeholders in public and private institutions on why and how to integrate dietary shifts into evidence-based policies and practices;
- Supporting and strengthening civil society’s efforts to elevate dietary shifts as a critical climate change solution;
- Coordinating collective impact strategies for affecting change at climate events and through targeted working groups; and
- Connecting diverse individuals and organizations who share a vision for a healthier, more climate-friendly global food system.
In April 2017, the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future, Brighter Green, World Resources Institute, and the Food Climate Research Network hosted a workshop for civil society organizations who wanted to see increased attention on dietary shifts and food-based solutions in climate policy. From that workshop grew the Food and Climate Alliance, which now includes individuals from more than 30 organizations from around the world.
