Food systems for healthy and sustainable diets

04-06-2018 - 22-06-2018

By 2050 the world population is estimated to have grown to around 9.7 billion people . The global challenge is not only how to feed the growing population, but also how to provide a nutritious diet for healthy living that can be sustained for generations. Present food systems do not ensure nutritious diets, reflected in the high levels of malnutrition (both under- and over) in the world. Food systems need to be transformed to sustainably address the societal challenges and move from just supplying sufficient food to providing sufficient high quality diets for all.
