Global Food Security 2030- Assessing Trends in View of Guiding Future EU Policies

A systemic look at food security and its complex nature.

The project

The project brought together a group of experts and stakeholders to develop a vision for food security in 2030.

This vision was then challenged in a test of resilience to unexpected occurrences and/or underestimated trends.

The entire process was designed to establish a structured and inclusive discussion that could be useful for guiding future EU policies.

The results

The resulting reportGlobal Food Security 2030- Assessing Trends in View of Guiding Future EU Policies shows that it is essential for Europe to move towards an integrated examination of a much broader landscape. Better coordination and coherence at EU level are necessary in order to move from a food-security to a food-systems approach.

This report calls for an evolution of present-day policies on food security and beyond into a common food systems policy in which both the systemic and global dimensions of food security are fully incorporated.
