Notes: Roughly one third of greenhouse gas emissions originate from the food sector, a figure inclusive of fossil fuel contributions with an estimated to cost the global economy 10% of its GDP annually. These costs primarily stem from adverse impacts on human health, food wastage, water pollution, and climate effects. Emphasized was the urgent need for significantly higher carbon pricing. The Good Food Finance Facility will start operations in 2024 as a global co-investment platform for food systems transformation.
