  • CGTN published this video item, entitled “How do we deal with the failings in the global food system?” – below is their description.

    As part of the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, the international community is trying to find a way to transform decades of agricultural progress and innovation into more resilient food systems. This transformation must simultaneously offer better nutrition and prevent hundreds of millions more people from becoming food insecure, while protecting natural resources and finding ways to reverse the damage of the past. How do we deal with the failings in the global food system? Why is it so important to keep in mind the environmental impact of food? And how do experts envision the future evolution of food?
