Mitigating climate change in food consumption
About the project
Contemporary consumer food choices and the production practices that support them put extensive pressure on the environment. Unsustainable food systems, particularly diets high in meat and other animal protein, contribute markedly to climate change. In order to achieve necessary greenhouse gas reductions in the food sector, policy mixes need to address both the supply-side as well as the demand-side. This research aims to examine different demand-side policies to support the transition to a sustainable, low carbon food system.
