I created a framework to determine which parts of the regenerative food and agriculture sector were most relevant and potentially impactful (very personal, of course).
It consists of three parts:
80.000h frame works of Effective Altruism
It looks at:
- Scale – if we solved the problem, how good would it be?
- Solvability – if we double the resources dedicated to solving this problem, what fraction of the problem would we expect to solve?
- Neglectedness – how many resources are already going towards solving this problem?
- Personal Fit
Leverage Points of Donella Meadows
About systems analysis, it looks at what an intervention could do there, at what level of the system this is working.
Trying to answer the investor question
My humble opinion in why this might be possible now or not. What is different this time?
This framework resulted in a few parts which stand out in terms of potential impact:
Nutrient dense food, Technology enabled landscape design, Payment systems for farmers for ecosystem services and Transition Finance (to finance it all).
