GEO-6 Infographics

These two infographics summarise messages on the food system and circular economy which are covered in the main publication. 

Food System: Current projections show that about 50 per cent more food will be needed to feed a population of up to 10 billion by 2050, yet the environmental impact of food production will need to decrease significantly to mitigate the climate impacts, biodiversity loss, land degradation and chemical pollution associated with this sector.

Energy System: Current projections are that energy demand will increase by 50-60 per cent between now and 2050, yet the amount of fossil fuels in that energy mix must decrease by about 80 percent by 2050 if we are to meet the Paris Agreement targets. Significant environmental and health synergies exist in this shift away from fossil fuels, with decreases in outdoor air pollution leading to decreases in premature deaths.
