This interdisciplinary group met to determine the game-changing developments to date, to agree a list of priority research questions for the food system, and to explore how these questions might be addressed through GFS programme activity.
In 2014, GFS established a UK-US Taskforce on Resilience of the Agri-Food System to Extreme Weather Events in collaboration with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and Science and Innovation Network (SIN).
This project aims to model the trade-offs between health and environmental impact associated with different food stuffs and different diets. This project will construct a decision support tool that will enable identification of healthy and sustainable diets that are achievable through different policy options and direct interventions on diet in the UK.
