“Avoiding disruptions in farm harvesting and food supply chains is a priority now, but it does not erase pre-existing crises. Our long-term food security largely depends on bringing climate change and ecosystem collapse under control, rebuilding soil fertility, protecting water and making farming ecologically and socially resilient. Crises should not be played off against each other, they must be addressed wisely together.

We therefore encourage you to address the short-term needs with a long-term vision, seeking win-wins and avoiding undue weakening of environmental standards.”
