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.


Since its April 2017 beginnings at a workshop hosted by the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future, in collaboration with Brighter Green, World Resources Institute, and the Food Climate Research Network, the Alliance network has grown to include more than 84 individuals from 58 different civil society organizations from around the world.
