Challenges of Our Current Food System

Impact on Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Food production is responsible for approximately 1/4 to 1/3 of the world's total greenhouse gas emissions. Livestock alone accounts for 14% of these global emissions.

Environmental Impacts and Biodiversity Loss

Agriculture is identified as the threat to 86% of the species at risk of extinction, with habitat conversion for crop production or pasture being a principal cause of habitat loss, thereby reducing biodiversity

Food Security and Nutrition-Related Problems

The number of people affected by hunger globally rose to 828 million in 2021, which increased by 46 million since 2020 and 150 million since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sustainable Gastronomy and the Need for Food Transformation

In addition to GHG emissions the food industry is responsible for 30% of global energy consumption. The UN predicts that by 2050, with a projected global population of over 9 billion, the world will need to produce 60% more food putting additional strain on the environment and resources.

Difficulties in Encouraging Behavioral Change

The focus on catering to individual desires within the market economy contributes to challenges in promoting healthy eating and sustainable behaviors. The current approach leads to products that cater to momentary desires of individual consumers, which can hinder efforts to address broader societal problems and long-term goals such as reducing welfare diseases and food waste.

Solutions for Sustainable Food Choices

Food sustainability means producing food in a way that protects the environment, utilizes natural resources efficiently, supports farmers, and enhances the quality of life in communities involved in food production, including both animals and humans. It encompasses a movement that addresses the imbalance between the resources invested in the global food system and the outcomes it produces. Ensuring food sustainability is crucial due to its direct impact on humankind's ability to provide sufficient food for the current population and future generations. The concept of food sustainability underscores the need for a shift towards a more balanced and environmentally conscious approach to food production and consumption.

Importance of Sustainable Food Systems

Sustainable food systems encompass various stages of food production, distribution, consumption, and waste disposal. By promoting sustainability in food production, distribution, and consumption practices, we can ensure food security, reduce environmental degradation, enhance economic stability, and safeguard the well-being of both individuals and ecosystems.
