Fixing food: towards a more sustainable food system

The world’s food system must ensure this growing population has access to the nutrition it needs to flourish, especially as climate change re-shapes agricultural production says this new report by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU). 

Fixing Food is an Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) report on food system sustainability globally, spanning agriculture, nutrition, and food loss and waste. It draws on an interview programme with experts from the academic, public and private sectors and is published alongside the Food Sustainability Index (FSI). The project was developed with the Barilla Center for Food and Nutrition (BCFN). The world’s food system is facing unprecedented challenges. The global population is set to reach 8.1 billion in 2025, with 95% of population growth driven by developing countries. The food system must ensure this growing population has access to the nutrition it needs to flourish, especially as climate change re-shapes agricultural production. This means tackling the twin nutritional challenges facing the world: hunger and nutrient deficiencies, along with unhealthy diets and obesity.
