COP28: Food is on the table, but only as a side dish

Paul Winters, an economist at the University of Notre Dame, and US and executive director of the Innovation Commission for Climate Change, Food Security and Agriculture, acknowledges the urgent need for change, but suggests, at least initially, an “evolutionary rather than a revolutionary approach” to the food and farming transition. “I don’t think the climate community has been great at working with farmers to come up with solutions,” Winters says. “It isn’t the same as telling people to ride their bike more; we have to incentivise farmers and recognise this is their livelihood.”
