Food Climate Research Network
Strategic partnerThe Food Climate Research Network (FCRN) is an interdisciplinary, intersectoral and international research-based network focused on food systems, climate and sustainability. Our vision is for a nutrition-driven, ethically mindful food system that sits within environmental limits. To achieve this we carry out research and help catalyse collaborative research projects that investigate the multifaceted challenges we face and the solutions that are possible. We are convinced that we need to work together – across sectors, disciplines and perspectives – to build mutual understanding and collaborate for change. FCRN’s three main aims are to a) communicate information on food systems, climate change and the intersection with other social, ethical and environmental concerns, b) bring people together to share knowledge and ideas and c) act as ‘honest broker’ between different stakeholders, who may have very different perspectives and priorities. The FCRN is based at the Environmental Change Institute at the University of Oxford but has a global membership of over 1100 active network members from 70 countries across a range of sectors and disciplines. We:
- Undertake research into food systems and sustainability
- Deliver regular information on food-sustainability issues from multiple disciplinary perspectives through our weekly newsletter.
- Provide a comprehensive source of information on food systems sustainability issues through our extensive website research library.
- Seek to engage our members by fostering ‘horizontal’ knowledge sharing and collaboration
