Since 1990, Burness Communications has teamed up with gifted researchers, nonprofits and world leaders to promote strategies to ensure the global food supply, protect forests, and build consensus around the causes and impact of global climate change.
When nearly one in four people worldwide live on less than $1 per day and one in 12 is malnourished, alerting policymakers and farmers about new approaches to hunger is a crucial first step towards a healthier, well-fed world.
When deforestation contributes nearly one-fifth of greenhouse gas emissions and the illegal trade in timber uproots families from their homes, driving conflict and wars, the voices of local communities and advocates need to be heard.
When the loss of local crop varieties that have defined cultures for generations and yielded harvests of plenty leaves farmers unprepared for new threats like climate change, new pests and diseases, action and advocacy to rescue and preserve crop varieties are imperative.
And when urban expansion and drought drive livestock and the herders who keep them into a perpetual cycle of hunger, illness, and poverty, their story must be told.
From the halls of a futuristic seed vault deep inside a mountain in the Arctic Circle to the green rainforests of the Congo Basin and the rolling farmlands of the East Africa's Great Rift Valley, Burness has been there, advancing our clients’ work with the hope of building a more equitable and sustainable world.
