I will be presenting about “Food sustainability: changing trends, benchmarking and the latest solutions” at the World Green Economy Summit, programmed by Economist Impact Events, on October 6th.
My presentation will focus on the Food Sustainability Index (FSI), developed by Economist Impact with the Barilla Foundation.
Our global food systems are being challenged like never before. Not only are they being tasked with supplying a growing global population with healthy, sufficient food to feed our families, but they must do so within the finite boundaries of the natural resources on which we rely.
The FSI is designed to track countries’ progress towards this formidable goal. It examines how food systems are performing across three pillars: food loss and waste, sustainable agriculture, and nutritional challenges. In the most recent report, the Economist analyses the G20’s performance on these pillars and investigates the opportunities for them to drive change on food sustainability.
This data-driven presentation will highlight and compare the performance of key countries and outline novel solutions to the rising food sustainability problem including: plant based proteins, sustainable aquaculture and the role of youth in leading food sustainability.
