Building Back Differently – Food Security
The Community Foundation is delighted to partner with Building Back Differently to share analyses and resources to raise awareness, spark conversation, and spur action to build new paths to recovery.
Building Back Differently is a collaborative project between Trent University researchers and community experts that pulls together local data and experience from the Peterborough region to help envision a healthier, more equitable future in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. One that takes into account the physical, mental, emotional, and social health and safety needs of our communities in crisis and refuses to return to a woefully inadequate pre-pandemic “normal.”

2. End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
It is time to rethink how we grow, share and consume our food.
If done right, agriculture, forestry and fisheries can provide nutritious food for all and generate decent incomes, while supporting people-centred rural development and protecting the environment.
Right now, our soils, freshwater, oceans, forests and biodiversity are being rapidly degraded. Climate change is putting even more pressure on the resources we depend on, increasing risks associated with disasters such as droughts and floods. Many rural women and men can no longer make ends meet on their land, forcing them to migrate to cities in search of opportunities.
A profound change of the global food and agriculture system is needed if we are to nourish today’s 815 million hungry and the additional 2 billion people expected by 2050.
The food and agriculture sector offers key solutions for development, and is central for hunger and poverty eradication.
