POLICY BRIEFING: Sustainable and Healthy Eating Patterns?

‘The food system is broken’ says Oxfam. Government scientific advisors warn of a ‘perfect storm’ of global events influenced by, and with, potentially catastrophic consequences for the food system. Organisations are launched to tackle the challenges posed by the ‘food-water-energy nexus.’ Some take a more political stance, and demand ‘food justice’ and ‘food sovereignty.’

A consortium aiming to understand local to global social, economic and environmental food system interactions - and to aid decision making

This blog-post is written by FCRN coordinator Tara Garnett who is part of a new global research collaboration; the Telecoupling consortium. In this post she describes what the project aims to do and she also asks for feedback from the FCRN community on key organisations, institutions and individuals that you think should be involved in this project, other projects that the research group should know about and data sources that could be included.
