Knowledge for better food systems

Annual report Bioversity International - work on Sustainable diets

The annual report 2013 from Bioversity international contains a special discussion on “Improved nutrition through sustainable food choices”.

The sustainable diets research by Bioversity focuses on food and food systems, taking into account food diversity and how it can be produced and acquired across all seasons and under different economic circumstances.

It looks at how whole food systems (including policies and investments throughout the food value chain) can provide people with access to safe, diverse, nutritious and healthy food throughout the year and achieve the best combinations of foods to maintain good nutrition and health over the long term.
