Agriculture is the world's largest industry. It employs more than one billion people and generates over
$1.3 trillion dollars’ worth of food annually. Pasture and cropland occupy around 50 percent of the
Earth’s habitable land and provide habitat and food for a multitude of species. When agricultural
operations are sustainably managed, they can preserve and restore critical habitats, help protect
watersheds, and improve soil health and water quality. But unsustainable practices have serious
impacts on people and the environment. The need for sustainable resource management is increasingly
urgent. Demand for agricultural commodities is rising rapidly as the world's population grows.
Agriculture’s deep connections to the world economy, human societies and biodiversity make it one of
the most important frontiers for conservation around the globe.
