Méndez Leal, E., K. Karl, and A. Ruane, 2023: Chapter 7: Food Systems. In Artificial Intelligence for Climate Change Mitigation Roadmap. D. Sandalow, Ed., ICEF Innovation Roadmap Project, December 2023, Innovation for Cool Earth Forum, pp. 67-74.

Food systems — including food production, distribution, consumption, and waste disposal — are critical to sustaining livelihoods and delivering nutrition worldwide. However, food systems contribute significantly to the climate crisis, accounting for over 30 percent of human-caused global greenhouse gas emissions (e.g., methane, carbon dioxide, and nitrous oxide). Climate change, in turn, has a significant and growing impact on food systems. Climate change increases heat stress and can lead to deteriorating soil health, for example, slowing agricultural productivity and reducing the nutritional content of crops and livestock. The cascading impacts of climate extremes on agricultural production are likely to destabilize global food security, endangering the livelihoods of billions of people and threatening public health.
