Food Systems

The shift to a food systems approach is critical because it:

  • Enables exploration of supply and demand side mitigation and adaptation co-benefits
  • Supports integration of equity, sustainability governance, and other key components of food systems transformation
  • Enables stakeholders to identify synergies with broader policy priorities
  • Has been understudied, with clear gaps that could affect future food security
  • Enables integration of sustainability options that fall outside agricultural production
