Opinion: Putting all foods on the same table: Achieving sustainable food systems requires full accounting
Friday, 2019/09/20 | 08:23:40

Benjamin S. Halpern et al. PNAS Sep 10, 2019

 

Improving global food systems is essential to addressing climate change, mitigating biodiversity loss, and meeting both sustainability and human development goals. International assessments from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services and business and technology innovations such as lab-grown and plant-based meat, as well as many consumer diet trends, can all be traced to studies that identify undesirable impacts of certain food systems. Yet the evidence underpinning many widely touted recommendations about what to grow and eat is remarkably sparse and generally biased.

Figure: The web of food impacts and interactions is challenging to map, let alone fully assess. We must address the holes in food assessment studies and the paucity of linkages among foods in these assessments to fully understand the cumulative impact of food production.
