Workshop: The Future for Food Systems

Wageningen UR and the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) co-organize the experts workshop ‘The Future for Food Systems’. The aim of this workshop is to support systematic food systems research as an analytical and policy device.

Supporting systematic food systems research as an analytical and policy device implies the search for a practical but comprehensive operational definition of Food Systems, based on a clear understanding of its internal and external dynamics (drivers, constraints, connections). In order to support the analytical purpose of food systems, the workshop will identify some guiding principles for the interdisciplinary and interactive food systems analysis. Finally, common insights will be derived regarding the effectiveness of policy instruments and incentives for healthier and sustainable diets.

The audience of the workshop consists of Dutch and international researchers involved in food system analysis, CGIAR partners, and policy makers, as well as participants from the private sector and civil society organizations that are involved in food system innovations.

The workshop is organized within the framework of the Wageningen UR strategic research program on Global Food & Nutrition Security (GF&NS) and marks the start of the Wageningen-led flagship ‘Food Systems for Healthier Diets’ that forms part of the CGIAR program Agriculture for Nutrition & Health (A4NH).
