This first report by the FABLE Consortium presents preliminary pathways towards sustainable land-use and food systems prepared by 18 country teams from developed and developing countries, including the European Union. The aim of these pathways is to determine and demonstrate the feasibility of making land-use and food systems sustainable in each country to achieve the SDGs and the objectives of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. The report represents the first coordinated effort by researchers from most G20 countries and other nations to chart long-term pathways towards sustainable land-use and food systems. Our preliminary results show that the objectives can be achieved but will require deep transformations in every country.

The report was jointly prepared by the 18 FABLE country teams, including the EU. The International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) and the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) coordinated the report, working closely with EAT and the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), and many other institutions.
