Integrated Indicators for Sustainable Food Systems and Healthy Diets
Our global food system represents a crucial opportunity for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Among the world’s most pressing challenges is providing a growing population, projected to exceed nine and a half billion by 2050, with safe, sufficient and nutritious food on a resilient planet. The Post-2015 agenda needs to address the interconnected issues of agriculture, nutrition, public health and environmental sustainability holistically by establishing integrated indicators for the SDGs which track healthy diets from sustainable food systems.
