One key new partnership in 2017 for action at both the private sector and individual countries level was the launch of the Food and Land-Use Coalition (FOLU) at the United National General Assembly, co-hosted by EAT. FOLU is a self-governing coalition composed of over 30 organizations established to transform the global food and land use systems.

It uses the EAT-Lancet dietary guidelines and planetary boundaries to develop global and national science-based targets, and pathways towards them. This work will be used to iteratively inform and raise the ambition of the private sector.

FOLU will also go deep into the policy, regulatory environment, and businesses of individual countries. Its efforts will start with Colombia, Indonesia and Ethiopia, and could later include the Nordics, Australia and Europe.
