The world is increasingly interconnected and needs cross-sectoral approaches to foster sustainable use of resources(well established). In a "business-as-usual" world, sectoral approaches to meeting individual global goals for food,water and energy security, while mitigating climate change and halting biodiversity loss may be successful, but will fail to meet these goals collectively because of the considerable trade-offs that currently exist between sectoral solutions (established but incomplete). Alternative scenarios with partially integrated modelling approaches provide a more complete depiction of potential outcomes (well established). There is a need to fully adopt integrated approaches to find sustainable solutions to the land degradation challenge,and take into account interactions across the supply of commodities, the environment as well as the increasing demand from a growing population and rising consumption levels.
