Food in the Anthropocene: the EAT–Lancet Commission on healthy diets from sustainable food systems
Food in the Anthropocene : the EAT-Lancet Commission on healthy diets from sustainable food systems.
Where are the best opportunities for reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the food system (including the food chain)
This paper reviews estimates of food related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions at the global, regional and national levels, highlighting both GHG-intensive stages in the food chain, and GHG-intensiveExpand
Sustainable Intensification in Agriculture: Premises and Policies
Clearer understanding is needed of the premises underlying SI and how it relates to food-system priorities. Food security is high on the global policy agenda. Demand for food is increasing asExpand
Livestock-related greenhouse gas emissions: impacts and options for policy makers
Abstract Research shows that livestock account for a significant proportion of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and global consumption of livestock products is growing rapidly. This paper reviews theExpand

The global food system makes a significant contribution to climate changing greenhouse gas emissions with all stages in the supply chain, from agricultural production through processing,Expand
Greenhouse gas mitigation potentials in the livestock sector
The livestock sector supports about 1.3 billion producers and retailers, and contributes 40-50% of agricultural GDP. We estimated that between 1995 and 2005, the livestock sector was responsible forExpand
Food security and sustainable intensification
The coming decades are likely to see increasing pressures on the global food system, both on the demand side from increasing population and per capita consumption, and on the supply side from greaterExpand
Meat consumption, health, and the environment
The future of meat Meat consumption is rising annually as human populations grow and affluence increases. Godfray et al. review this trend, which has major negative consequences for land and waterExpand
Three perspectives on sustainable food security: efficiency, demand restraint, food system transformation. What role for life cycle assessment?
Achieving food system sustainability is a global priority but there are different views on how it might be achieved. Broadly three perspectives are emerging, defined here as: efficiency oriented,Expand
Energy Intensity of Agriculture and Food Systems
The relationships between energy use in food systems, food system productivity, and energy resource constraints are complex. Moreover, ongoing changes in food production and consumption normsExpand
