UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) in partnership with government are pleased to announce a highly ambitious £25 million call for research to fundamentally transform the UK food system, by placing healthy people and a healthy natural environment at its centre.
This report highlights the significant benefits for policymaking from a food systems approach. Thinking systemically and at an interdisciplinary level can help ensure that challenges are tackled from multiple perspectives and in a holistic way. Such an approach provides a way of identifying win-wins, managing trade-offs and mitigating less desirable outcomes, enabling stronger policy coherence across agriculture, nutrition, health, trade, climate and the environment, in both businesses and governments around the world.
