EAT-Lancet Commission on Food, Planet, and Health

Information

The Eat-Lancet Commission on Food, Planet, Health brings together more than 30 leading scientists from across the globe to provide targets for healthy diets and sustainable production systems. The Commission conducted a scientific review of what constitutes a healthy diet, and then independently described Earth System targets for sustainability. It then assessed the impacts of shifts to healthy diets on environmental limits. Through a modelling exercise, the Commission finds that it is possible to provide healthy diets within environmental limits for all by 2050 but that achieving these targets requires significant dietary shifts, reductions in food loss and waste, and sustainable intensification of agriculture. The Commission concludes with five high level recommendations to catalyze and support food system transformation.

Dr. Jessica Fanzo and Dr. Fabrice DeClerck are co-authors of the report, and bring their expertise on nutrition, agriculture and environment. They will join us to discuss the report findings and give a backstage look into the process. While the report is being launched in over 20 locations globally this month, Jess and Fabrice bring a special launch directly to Ag2Nut, in a webinar facilitated by the Agriculture, Nutrition & Health Academy.

Please join the conversation, for what promises to be an illuminating discussion on food systems and nutrition!
