MEAT ONCE A WEEK is an open invitation to make simple changes in our daily eating behaviour.
Our Meat Production is one of the worst climate killers. Half of the Planets habitable Zone is already used for agriculture — 77% percent of that are pastures ! The area used for plant Food products amounts to only 20 % – but covers 82% of the worldwide supply of calories & 64 % of proteins.
Deforestation & destruction of wildlife Habitats are direct consequences & lead to catastrophic damages to our ecosystem. Lesser CO2 absorption from vegetation, higher degrees of evaporation & the endangerment of over 24,000 species, so…Imagine how much Food we could Produce on that Land for humans? On top of that, our meat Production requires enormous amounts of water and animal feed per kilogram (7kg green fodder & 5000 l water for 1 kg pork/ )
We can achieve so much with just a little change in our eating habits! Let’s do it together-please join us. We are in September with MEAT ONCE A WEEK in our Federal Environment Ministry!
The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) commits to improving access to nutritious and safe foods in a sustainable way. GAIN will invest at least $250m by 2025 in measures to tackle poor diets in Africa and Asia, working together with national governments and partners.
Plant genetic resources are the basis for resilience and sustainability of our seed systems; while a vibrant and inclusive seed sector contributes to innovation, improved livelihoods, and economic development. The seed value chains, comprising of public and private actors, farmers, and CSOs, need to work together towards solutions to ensure accessibility and availability of quality seeds to contribute to the achievements of the SDGs.
