France has vowed to support the growth of sustainable agriculture across the world at the One Planet Summit in Paris today.

At a side event, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations renewed its partnership with the French Government to support sustainable agriculture and tackle climate change through to 2021.

“FAO’s new framework agreement with France emphasizes the common goal of supporting a shift to sustainable agriculture and food systems as central to facing the challenges of hunger, climate change and decent employment for all,” the FAO said in a news statement.

And France is well placed to support these efforts, having just topped the latest Food Sustainability Index.
