Knowledge for better food systems

Launch of the EAT-Lancet Commission's website

The EAT-Lancet Commission on Food, Planet, Health brings together 20 world-leading scientists from across the globe to reach a scientific consensus that defines a healthy and sustainable diet. The commission’s report will be published by The Lancet in Spring 2018.

The Commission’s five Working Groups are investigating:

1) What is a healthy diet?

2) What is a sustainable food system?

3) What are the trends shaping diets today?

4) Can we achieve healthy diets from sustainable food systems? How?

5) What are the solutions and policies we can apply?

FCRN’s Tara Garnett is part of work group five. The website of the Commission - Food Planet Health provides further information.
