The world is currently witnessing a number of global crises: food, financial and environmental. The reality for billions of people is one of persistent poverty, insecurity and environmental destruction. One important lesson we can learn from these crises is that we are living in an interdependent world. No longer can we separate the economy from the people, the people from the environment, the environment from the economy
