SDG 15 presents an enormous challenge for stakeholders within the food system. Corporations, NGOs, scientists and other change-makers are already working on meeting those goals, however, increased cross-sector collaboration is the only way to tackle biodiversity challenges.
Biodiversity is key to building resilience in systems. This is particularly true for food production and distribution systems. The Klosters Forum brings together key stakeholders who can help deliver tools to address this within organisations linked to the food system.
Despite Covid-19 restrictions, The Klosters Forum successfully convened a select group of key stakeholders for TKF20 (September 2020) and TKF21 (June 2021) to pursue our crucial food system transformation work. Our Participants discussed ways and new approaches to move from an extractive, efficiency-, yield- and low-cost- driven food system towards one that enables nature to flourish and regenerate.
“As stewards of global capital, investors matter…They alone have the power to withhold or withdraw capital from businesses that fail to take their environmental responsibilities seriously. Today’s environmental debate tends to focus solely on climate change. But corporations – and their investors – need to pay attention to their impact on biodiversity or food waste as they do to their carbon footprint.
Our partnership with The Klosters Forum aims to share knowledge by participating in open conversations and seeking solutions together.”

2020/21 are the super years for nature and biodiversity. Our broken food system is a major driver of biodiversity loss but, the good news is, that it can be transformed and can even be a pathway to biodiversity preservation – and regeneration. The question is, how can we as nations, businesses and individuals make this happen – fast?
