The lives, health and well-being of all people on earth will be affected by the decisions that individuals, governments and businesses make at the interface of forests and agricultural lands around the world. This is especially important for the hundreds of millions of people living in poverty at that interface. Forests and Food makes a timely and very necessary contribution as the world starts to focus on transforming our world by 2030 through the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. Access to world-class research evidence as provided here will help to deliver the first difficult steps on this ambitious but essential journey.
