Bioversity International and the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Montpellier (CIHEAM-IAMM) presented a half-day symposium on the metrics of sustainable diets and food systems.
The symposium addressed the issue of nutrition as a final outcome of food systems and how dietary pattern changes can contribute to sustainability goals. It also explored the concepts of vulnerability and resilience as an approach to capture the food system as a whole, think prospectively and identify the system elements that policy can leverage.
Two keynote speakers introduced the principles of food system sustainability and the implementation of systemic modelling approaches. These plenary sessions were followed by a presentation of the results of an expert consultation jointly conducted by Bioversity International and the CIHEAM-IAMM.
