New EAT-Lancet Commission website explores sustainable, healthy food

Published May 31, 2017

Understanding what constitutes a healthy diet and how to produce it sustainably for 9 billion people by 2050 is arguably the greatest challenge facing humanity. The EAT-Lancet Commission on Food, Planet, Health is developing science-based targets that define what is a healthy diet from a sustainable food system – and showing how to take action for a better food future.

The new Food, Planet, Health website showcases news, case studies, data tools and Commissioner profiles. The site will connect stakeholders from around the globe with the ongoing work of 20 world-leading researchers who are creating the first science-based targets for a future food system with sustainable and healthy diets for all.

In 2018, the Commission will deliver its final report with clear guidelines for policy-makers, business and consumers on how to achieve diets that are good for people and planet. They explain the process like a mini IPCC assessment: A review of the vast scientific knowledge we already have about healthy diets and sustainable food production, to define the scientific consensus on food, helping turn science into solutions and discussions into action.
