Sustainable Food Systems and Health - The convenient truth of addressing climate change while promoting health

Feeding the world sustainably and promoting good nutrition and health under a changing climate is one of the main challenges of our time. Changes in dietary patterns towards more production and consumption of meat and animal products present a set of complex tasks for climate change mitigation, for agriculture, for health and for achieving food and nutrition security. The challenge today is to sustainably improve nutrition and health through implementation of coherent policies and better coordinated actions across all relevant sectors, strengthening, preserving and recovering healthy and sustainable food systems.
