What We Are Working On
The Global Food Security programme aims to better understand how behaviour could be changed to support improved outcomes for health and sustainability, exploring the determinants of dietary choices, the win-wins and trade-offs across health and sustainability, and the mix of interventions required for change across government, business and civil society.
The Global Food Security programme aims to understand how increasingly severe extreme weather events and environmental tipping points have the potential to impact on the global food system, as well as identify approaches to prevent and mitigate these impacts.
The GFS Science Advisory Group aims to conduct a light touch refresh of knowledge needs in food security based on recent game changing global and scientific developments, providing an up to date set of priority research questions to inform the future activity of GFS and its partners.
The GFS programme aims to understand how food provision and other ecosystem services can be delivered simultaneously on multi-functional landscapes, in the context of social and economic factors. This Policy Lab aims to understand the current state of knowledge on multi-functional landscapes in the UK, synthesise the latest evidence and develop a set of recommendations to inform future UK agricultural policy.
Interdisciplinary and whole system approaches to research on UK and global food supply systems are cornerstones of the GFS programme. On this page you can find current interdisciplinary research calls relevant to food security, including Global Challenges Research Fund, Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund, Prosperity Fund, and the Newton Fund.
TempAg is a global research collaboration network established to increase the impact of agricultural research and inform policy making in the world’s temperate regions. Through its activities, TempAg enables policy makers, funding bodies, scientists, and other decision makers, to align national and transnational research agendas to allow innovations and policy interventions for sustainable agriculture in temperate zones.
The Global Food Security programme aims to understand what a future food system might look like that tackles climate change whilst also improving nutrition, exploring interventions in the food system that would help meet the Paris Climate Agreement and deliver against the SDGs.
The Global Food Security programme wishes to synthesise knowledge and further understand how blockchain technology can be used to enhance agriculture and the wider food system.
