Paper: Global Drivers of Food System (un) Sustainability

PAPER: GLOBAL DRIVERS OF FOOD SYSTEM (UN) SUSTAINABILITY

by A4NH | April 16, 2020

Food systems are transforming rapidly, particularly in low- and middle-income countries, yet the dynamics around those transformations and their impact on sustainability are not well understood. This new paper, from researchers at The Alliance of Bioversity International and CIAT, Johns Hopkins University, the University of Denver, and the University of California - Davis, with support from A4NH, attempts to improve this understanding through an analysis of sustainability factors and food systems drivers.

The paper, titled Global Drivers of Food System (un) Sustainability: A Multi-Country Correlation Analysis, was published in Plos One in April 2020.
