Reducing agricultural footprint

Many of the developed countries depend on exploiting the land of "distant elsewheres", mostly in the South, to grow their agricultural inputs and other foods. For example, the Netherlands depends not just on the produce from its own two million hectares, but on an additional 15-16 million hectares in other countries; it then exports a sizeable amount of its agricultural produce (being the third largest agricultural exporter with 10% of the world's agricultural exports).
