COP26 is just around the corner, when a lot of attention will be on the climate change negotiations. Devon have declared a Climate Emergency, and the Devon Food Partnership is keen to celebrate the local work already taking place on this day of action.

Globally, food systems account for 21-37% of total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and are at the heart of many of the world’s major challenges today including biodiversity loss and enduring hunger and malnutrition, therefore improving our food system and the way we eat could be key to tackling other key climate issues.
