Designing Food Value Chains to foster the UN Sustainable Development Goals

Kurzdarstellung

The current food system is not able to produce food to nourish the people in a sustainable way. Less environmental impact, resource use efficiency, maintaining soil fertility, closing of nutrient cycles, stable harvests, improved distribution, avoiding food losses/food waste, fair business models and food sovereignty are the main challenges in the current food system.

The new design of existing or new supply chains on a local, regional and international level are of special relevance. They should be designed to foster the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), which entered into force on 1 January.

Young scientists will be relevant actors in this process of change. For them, ZHAW and FiBL offers e-learning tools and an international summer school will be held in Switzerland, Slovenia and India on the topic of "Designing Food Value Chains to foster the UN Sustainable Development Goals."
