FGH International Agribusiness Consulting and Aligning with the UN FAO Goals
Agriculture is an industry the world needs to live in. It's the art and science of cultivating the soil to grow healthy crops and raise livestock.
It's what provides the world with food and provides the products produced to create materials needed in everyday life. While this industry is a necessary way of life, it is one of the most destructive industries that create a loss of habitats and contributes to many of the environmental challenges that are the leading causes of global warming.
The challenges of creating a sustainable way to implement better practices for smaller and larger agribusinesses worldwide have become a need with the acceleration of Global Warming. There is a need to produce sustainable practices while protecting the threatened smaller businesses if practices are not implemented correctly.
In 1945, the UN created the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) to lead the international efforts to defeat hunger and achieve food security for people to live healthy, active lives. The mission of the UN FAO has grown and evolved to incorporate creating sustainable agriculture that aligns with the goals of the world to slow the effects of climate change and reduce the harmful impacts that the agricultural industry can create.
The food system is complex and can be impacted by weather, environmental changes and degradation, price spikes, and more. Working together with the UN FAO to deliver food security without compromising the full spectrum of the economic chain can lead to healthier agriculture production that is better for the environment and leads to more nutritious food for all.

Reducing the Impacts of Climate Changes
Climate change has become one of the primary missions of many countries worldwide to reduce the carbon footprint and water footprint collectively. Agricultural industries are one of the major contributors to methane emissions and greenhouse gas emissions, producing up to 29% of emissions.
Using an integrated approach to managing landscapes that address food security and reduce the impact of climate change is essential to creating a future with food security and a healthy, thriving agricultural industry.
