Energy, fossil fuels, transport and industry tend to dominate climate discussions and actions. However, the food system generates around 26% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Around 75% of agriculture’s emissions are produced by livestock, including the production of feed for livestock and the associated land use changes.

In this letter, the EEB joins several other groups urging the United Nations and several world leaders to ensure that food and farming are included among the priority areas in the discussions at the December 2020 Climate Summit and COP 26 in November 2021.
