How can the EU help promote a shift towards healthier diets within sustainable food systems, including through more sustainable protein sources, nutrition-sensitive value chains, and less food waste? Fragmented interventions are no game changers; to reach the global climate goals and build a sustainable and healthy food system, more systemic approaches, global solidarity, and a powerful mix of policies and incentives are required.
In the context of the ongoing food, energy and costs of living crisis, concerted efforts are needed to strengthen equitable, environmentally sustainable and economically prosperous food systems to provide healthy, affordable and nutritious food for all. While this transformation is facing many global challenges, a recent study by IFPRI and IISD, “Achieving Sustainable Food Systems in a Global Crisis”, based on the Ceres 2030 report, shows how and at what cost countries can nonetheless achieve this goal. This session will bring together researchers and policy makers to discuss the importance of promoting healthy diets in an environmentally sustainable way. The session will also highlight how investments can support partner countries to develop climate-resilient value chains that boost food security and nutrition.
The Commission, BMZ, Malawi and Shamba Center for Food and Climate will explain what it means to put nutrition and climate change at the heart of the global food systems transformation.
