The United Nations’ “Agenda 2030” Sustainable Development Goals and the U.N.’s partners at the World Economic Forum (WEF) are directly related to the rising regulatory assault on agricultural producers from Holland and the United States to Sri Lanka and beyond.
In fact, a number of the U.N.’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are directly tied to the implementation of laws that put pressure on global agriculture, ranching, and food sources.
High-ranking Chinese Communist Party (CCP) officials within the U.N. system assisted in the development of the SDGs and are currently assisting in directing the organization’s execution of the global strategy.
The U.N.-backed sustainability regulations on agriculture and food production, according to a number of experts, would cause economic ruin, shortages of essential items, widespread starvation, and a significant loss of personal freedoms if not stopped.
Officials predict that as the year goes on, the dangerous food shortages that millions of people are already experiencing will only worsen.
According to experts, there is a hidden goal behind everything.
According to U.N. papers, private land ownership is in the crosshairs as global food production and the global economy are modified to fulfill the global sustainability targets.
The goals set in 2015 “build on decades of work by countries and the U.N.,” as the U.N. explains on its SDG website.
The United Nations Conference on Human Settlements, often referred as Habitat I, which embraced the Vancouver Declaration (read below), was one of the first conferences to define the “sustainability” agenda.
According to the agreement, private land ownership is “a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth, therefore contributes to social injustice,” and “land cannot be treated as an ordinary asset controlled by individuals.”
The U.N. resolution stated that “public control of land use is therefore indispensable,” setting up the World Economic Forum’s now-famous “prediction” that by 2030, “you’ll own nothing.”
Since then, a number of U.N. organizations and representatives have described their vision of “sustainability,” which includes demands for significant limits on energy use, consumption of meat, travel, living space, and material wealth.
In an attempt to centralize control over food production and squelch independent farmers and ranchers, some of the richest and most influential corporate leaders in the world are collaborating with communists in China and other countries, says experts.
A “strategic partner” of the U.N. on Agenda 2030 is the WEF, a network of significant international corporations that works closely with the CCP.
As officials from all over the world, including U.S. President Joe Biden and the head of the United Nations World Food Programme David Beasley, warn of impending food shortages worldwide, the regulation of food production is becoming more strict, and there are even attempts to shut down numerous farms and ranches.
But Western nations and many aid-dependent states are tightening regulations even more, rather than loosening them and promoting increased production.
This summer, Dutch farmers — who were already near breaking point — responded with widespread, huge protests. That was followed by tumultuous upheaval in Sri Lanka related to food shortages brought on by political decisions.
Governments and international organizations have used a variety of justifications for the policy, such as fostering “economic justice,” safeguarding various species of flora and fauna, and even giving back land to aboriginal peoples.
However, the policies’ detractors contend that the objective is not at all to protect the environment or stop climate change. The “sustainability” story and the other explanations, the experts caution, are actually a tactic to obtain control over food, farm, and people.
According to Craig Rucker, head of the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), a public policy organization that focuses on environmental and development issues, “the end goal of these efforts is to reduce sovereignty on both individual nations and people.”
The purpose, is to consolidate authority at the national and even international level. “The intent for those pushing this agenda is not to save the planet, as they purport, but to increase control over people,” he said.
UN Sustainable Development Goals — Agenda 2030
The United Nations and its member nations approved the Sustainable Development Goals, often known as Agenda 2030, in 2015 as a roadmap for “transforming our world.” The 17 goals contain 169 targets covering every aspect of the economy and human life, and are heralded by top U.N. officials as a “master plan for humanity” and a global “declaration of interdependence.”
The document’s preamble states that “no one will be left behind” and states that “all countries and all stakeholders, acting in collaborative partnership, will implement this plan.”
Goal 10 of the U.N. plan includes, among other things, redistribution of wealth on a national and worldwide scale, in addition to “fundamental changes in the way that our societies produce and consume goods and services.”
The SDGs emphasize using governments to reform all economic activity, with Goal 12 requiring “sustainable consumption and production patterns.”
Several of the specific goals listed in Goal 12 are closely related to agricultural practices that jeopardize food production. These include “sustainable management and efficient use of natural resources.”
The document requires “environmentally sound management of chemicals and all wastes throughout their life cycle, in accordance with agreed international frameworks,” which is perhaps more significant.
As a result, “significantly reduce their release to air, water, and soil in order to minimize their adverse impacts on human health and the environment,” in particular for farmers.
Goal 14 of the SDGs, which covers “marine pollution of all kinds, in particular from land-based activities, including … nutrient pollution,” is another SDG that is directly related to what detractors have dubbed the “war on farmers.” Agriculture and food production are frequently cited by the U.N. as threats to the ocean.
Leading the charge is the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), which is overseen by Qu Dongyu, a former vice minister of agriculture and rural affairs for the CCP.
The U.N. body asks for severe limitations on the application of fertilizers, pesticides, emissions, and water in the agricultural sector in its 2014 report, “Building a Common Vision for Sustainable Food and Agriculture: Principles and Approaches.”
According to the FAO report, “excessive use of nitrogen fertilizer is a major cause of water pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.” This statement serves as an illustration of how agriculture must be transformed in order for it to be recognized by the U.N. as sustainable.
