Towards Food Sustainability: Reshaping the Coexistence of different Food Systems in South America and Africa
This transdisciplinary action research project investigates the two questions of 1) how a concept of food system sustainability with the pillars right to food, food security, reduction of poverty and inequality, environmental performance, and social-ecological resilience can be used for assessing food systems; and 2) what policy options are suitable for making food systems more sustainable in the specific contexts of Bolivia and Kenya
Much of the agri-food diversity in the global tropics has disappeared from production systems due to consumption patterns changing. This is partially because of lack information and knowledge about it nutritional characteristics, the adoption of unsustainable diets and the specialization of monocrop agriculture based on over use of agrochemicals. The gastronomy sector can help reverse this undesirable situation since it plays an important role in linking food production with consumption.
