The EAT-Lancet Commission on Food, Planet, Health

Can we feed a future population of 10 billion people a healthy diet within planetary boundaries?

The EAT-Lancet Commission on Food, Planet, Health brings together more than 30 world-leading scientists from across the globe to reach a scientific consensus that defines a healthy and sustainable diet.

The Commission is delivering the first full scientific review of what constitutes a healthy diet from a sustainable food system, and which actions can support and speed up food system transformation.
