In this opinion piece for Ecologist, UN Food Systems Summit Action Track 5 leaders, Sandrine Dixson-Decléve and Saleemul Huq, write on the importance of building resilience when facing world hunger, poverty, climate change and biodiversity loss, and how the G7 must find the political leadership and courage to protect the next generation.

The G7 leaders represent the hopes for future generations, and they have a great opportunity to set up new ambitions. They must put climate, nature and social equity at the heart of transformation. The way to achieve this transformation is to commit to food access for all, protect at least 30 percent of land and sea by 2030, and reach carbon naturality by 2050.

The UN Food Systems Summit, along with other biodiversity talks and the climate COP, will provide ideal platforms for G7 leaders to come together and find solutions to help the most vulnerable and reach transformative change.
