Global Action Plan for Agricultural Diversification
… In an era of climate change

“A ‘perfect storm’ of food shortages, scarce water and insufficient energy resources threaten to unleash public unrest, cross-border conflicts and mass migration as people flee from the worst-affected regions”
-Sir John Beddington, Former UK Government Chief Scientific Adviser


 

 

Humanity depends on just four crops for most of its food and non-food needs. Global temperatures are predicted to increase by +2C and this has serious implications for productions of the major crops. By 2030, the world will need 50 percent more food and energy and 30 percent more fresh water.

We now need new, imaginative opportunities for agricultural diversification that include a wider range of crop species and agricultural systems that can link producers, consumers and markets and that are resilient to  variable and volatile climates. The Global Action Plan for Agricultural Diversification (GAPAD) is an initiative to meet the needs of a hotter world.




The Declaration on Agricultural Diversification, spearheaded by Crops For the Future (CFF), stands alongside the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change Conference of Parties (UNFCCC COP21) Agreement as an historic document.  On 7 December 2015 in Paris, the Declaration was signed by leading figures from government, academia, the non-government sector and business. It will underpin the Global Action Plan for Agricultural Diversification (GAPAD).
