Inge Brouwer, "Food System Transformations: National Actions in a Globalized World"

  1. 1. FOOD SYSTEM TRANSFORMATIONS: NATIONAL ACTIONS IN A GLOBALIZED WORLD Overview IFPRI Lunch seminar, 14 November 2019 Inge D. Brouwer, A4NH-FSHD, Wageningen University
  2. 2. Food systems transform rapidly from agrarian to modern shaped by global and regional changes Challenged to deliver nutritious foods equitably within planetary boundaries Country-specific approaches needed
  3. 3. National Food System Transformation Priority Issues • Dietary Transition (balancing healthy and unhealthy) requires urgent attention • Sustainability: water/land; climate adaptation (crisis) • Collaboration and Coordination: • Public, private, civil society, academia • Multiple agents, institutions, size, and scale • Appropriate Enabling / Anchoring: • Realistic in national / regional context • Equitable and balanced • Evolving roles – public regulation and private responsibility and management
  4. 4. Simplified HLPE Framework for Food Systems
  5. 5. Rural Food System 1 Diets low in diversity, cereal- based, low footprint, low costs, relatively safe, relatively cheap Mixed Food System 2 Urban Food System 3 Future Food System 4 Dietary risk factors decline; diet quality improves; footprint reduced; costs reduced, safe Diets increase in sodium, processed meat, SSB, trans fat; dietary diversity is increasing ; costs increasing; footprint low, unsafe Diets high in sodium, processed meat, SSB, trans fat; diets low in legumes, F&V, nuts, seeds, footprint increases, increasingly safe but expensive Obesity outweighs undernutrition; burden of dietary risks highest Undernutrition and deficiencies reduce, obesity increases High undernutrition and deficiencies Undernutrition almost non-existent, obesity starts to reduce Dietary transition, various dietary risk factors Burdens of malnutrition, foot prints Food system transition towards healthier and more sustainable diets (based on Downs, Ahmed & Herforth, forthcoming)
