Food demand is expected to increase by more than 50% in just the next 30 years as the world’s population continues to grow.
It's a challenge that can be met. Despite the barriers, we provide the science, tools, and partnerships that influence decision making. Our grounding in science and our innovative approach to conservation allows us to scale quickly to achieve system change.
Our goal? To conserve nearly 10 billion acres of ocean, 1.6 billion acres of land, and 620,000 miles of rivers, all of which contribute to our global food requirements. We intend to achieve this ambitious goal through new and better-managed protected areas, global-scale sustainable fishing, restoring working lands, innovative financing, partnering with communities and Indigenous peoples, and positive policy changes.
Land and water stewardship can restore health to our food systems. Food is sustainable when it benefits the environment and maintains soil fertility. We’re fostering innovations in technology, collaborating with communities to use resources more efficiently and promoting policies that enable sustainability. Together, we can secure healthy food and clean water for all people without sacrificing the environment.
