Food Forever is here to show you that
Biodiversity is key
If we do it right and we do it together, food can drive the positive changes our world needs. Food Forever is here to show you that biodiversity is key.
Under Target 2.5 of the Sustainable Development Goals, the global community committed to protecting what remains of this vast, colorful spectrum of diversity within our food system, but governments can’t do it alone.
Maintaining agricultural biodiversity is fundamental for our survival as a species, yet has seldom made it to major international agreements broader than its immediate arena. Now it has. It is an important milestone and a critical task not only for those working in this field, but indeed all of us .” – Marie Haga, Associate Vice-President, External Relations and Governance Department, IFAD
With climate change and population growth increasingly challenging our natural resources, we all have a vested interest in more resilient food systems. The goal of the Food Forever Initiative is to rally the support necessary from all stakeholders – be it politicians, farmers, chefs, businesses, or individuals- to drive a positive change in the way we conserve, grow, sell and consume crop and livestock diversity.
Food Forever Champions have agreed to join you as an advocate for this important cause. They are experts and leaders from all walks of life who are driven to speak out about the importance of food diversity. Food Forever Partner Organizations are groups whose work contributes to implementing SDG Target 2.5. Together, the Global Crop Diversity Trust (Crop Trust) and the Netherlands Government provide the Initiative’s secretariat functions. Financial support is provided by the Governments of Germany, Norway, Switzerland and The Netherlands.
We all have a role to play. Follow us to learn more about what you can do and what other are already doing to ensure food, forever!
Meet the people behind Food Forever. Together they’re using their voices to help bring biodiversity back to the core of our food systems. They come from all walks of life – business, government, civil society – and they care.
Food Forever Partner Organizations are those whose missions help us achieve SDG Target 2.5. Some can be found working in the field, on the farm, in the lab and places in between. We’re grateful for everything they’re doing to make our food systems more sustainable, tasty and prosperous!
