A new report published by the multi-agency Global Food Security (GFS) programme describes how disruptive innovation is needed to transform the UK food system.
The Global Food Security (GFS) programme invites expressions of interest from post-doctoral researchers to take part in a Policy Lab on the determinants of food choice (for example biological, social, environmental, physical and economic) and the combination of interventions across these that will lead to healthier and more sustainable diets.
GFS will host an ECR Policy Lab on 19-21 March 2018, which will synthesise the latest knowledge and evidence in this area to better understand what determines food choice and to describe the best combination of interventions that would be most impactful in encouraging healthier and more sustainable diets. The winning team at the workshop will receive a £5,000 Policy Lab award to write a policy-facing report.
The Global Food Security (GFS) programme has published a new workshop report that highlights the risks and challenges of using alternatives to conventional pesticides in the food system.
A new report explores how UK stakeholders and consumers perceive consumer-facing information that shows the carbon footprint of high-protein food products. The study was funded by the Global Food Security programme as part of the Policy Lab, in which post-doctoral researchers compete to write a report for the programme.
What technologies could sustainably replace pesticides, without compromising on yield or quality? The Global Food Security (GFS) programme’s David O’Gorman reviews a recent GFS workshop on the topic.
The UN recently stated that it finds ‘no credible pathway to 1.5C in place’ with current global commitments to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions. In anticipation of the conclusion of COP27, here is a recap from the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, released in April 2022. This looks at possible solutions and mitigation strategies in response to the changing climate, including what role the food system can play in our fight against climate change.
