This rhetoric is hugely welcome. It must now be translated into action. The UK Government must step up and place farming, diets, wildlife and climate change at the heart of their policy agenda.
Government support for a transition to organic and nature-friendly farming is a vital part of the puzzle, and Government must commit to ensuring the food and farming sector plays its part in tackling climate change in line with the Paris Agreement. We need to see that our leaders are truly committed to keeping 1.5 degrees of global warming within reach.
We need Government to support our farmers to transition to agroecological farming, like organic.
In the UK, recent legislation will place a legal obligation on the Government to reverse the decline in our biodiversity. This is hugely welcome. We will be advising Government how to back nature-friendly solutions.
Having trees as part of the farm network can increase land productivity by up to 40%, so weaving trees into our farming - known as agroforestry - is a positive way forward for climate friendly farming. On top of this, trees on farms can reduce floods and drought, benefit wildlife, and protect the soil. We need Government to support tree planting on more farms.
The Earth's soils store more than three times the amount of carbon in the atmosphere and four times the amount stored in all living plants and animals. And there are 10 billion tonnes of carbon stored in UK soils, so how our farmers treat the soil is vital. We know the solutions to increasing soil carbon and now we urgently need to act on these.
Please help us set the right future for UK food, farming, wildlife and forestry.
