Food systems are facing an unprecedented array of familiar and unfamiliar risks, interacting in a hyperconnected world and a changing landscape.
The role of mountains in supporting the world’s food systems by providing up to 80% of the global fresh water should be recognized. Actionable commitments should be taken to protect mountains as the “water towers of the world”, promote their adaptation to climate change, and recognize their role in ensuring food security.
Faced with a matter of years to protect, sustainably manage, and restore our landscapes that support food systems, we urgently need to make the right decisions supported by transparent, accessible, accurate, and credible data.
