The GFS Science Advisory Group (SAG) workshop identified the top 20 key research themes and questions needed to help transform our food system and deliver global goals by 2030.
A new policy-facing GFS report by Early Career Researchers from across UKRI has been released. This report explores if True Cost Accounting can be a useful tool to help reduce the food we waste and offers policy recommendations to help eliminate food loss and waste.
A new policy-facing GFS report by Early Career Researchers from across UKRI is being released at the United Nations COP26 Climate Change conference. This report explores if True Cost Accounting can be a useful tool to help reduce the food we waste and offers policy recommendations to help eliminate food loss and waste.
The Global Food Security programme is updating and refreshing its strategy to reflect the changed landscape of the food and research systems. The new GFS strategy will draw on expertise from the Strategy Advisory Board, the Programme Coordination Group and the Science Advisory Group.
Today on Food Safety Day (7th June) we highlight a variety of ongoing work across UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and some of our GFS partners which is bringing together insights from across science, business and society to ensure safe, sustainable food for all.
Applications Open for 2021 Policy Lab: Reducing Food Loss and Waste to Contribute to Net Zero Emissions from the Food System
The Global Food Security programme is inviting applications from early career researchers to take part in the 2021 Policy Lab on reducing food loss and waste with a focus on reducing emissions from the food system and contributing to net zero goals.
This policy facing think piece explores the emerging trend of plant-based diets and their impact on the UK food system. The report identifies what steps are needed to support the transition, capitalising on the benefits and minimising the risks the trend presents.
This work was funded by the Global Food Security (GFS) programme as part of its Policy Lab, in which Early Career Researchers compete to write a policy-facing report for the programme.
A new GFS and BBSRC report details the findings from a workshop with stakeholders across the food system, exploring how we could ‘build back better’ and create a more resilient post COVID-19 food network which simultaneously delivers resilience and sustainability.
The Global Food Security Programme unveils a new Doctoral Training Centre, funded by the UKRI-SPF. The DTC, led by the University of Greenwich aims to create the next generation of food system leaders to help transform how the UK produces, supplies, and consumes food.
The newly released report from the 2018 Policy Lab winners explores interventions that require little to no personal or psychological effort to discourage meat consumption in the UK.
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.
