Toward a sustainable food future

Chapter 8 in 2016 Global Food Policy Report, 2016, pp 66-79 from International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI)
A global convergence toward Western-style diets that are high in calories, protein, and animal-based foods poses challenges for food security and sustainability. To quantify the benefits of shifting these consumers to more sustainable diets, several possible diet shifts are modeled. A framework is proposed to tackle the crucial question of how to shift people’s diets through the retail and food services sector.
