30 December 2015 -what could be important for food and agriculture in 2016

Food Tank has just published a list of 16 stories they predict will be  food and agriculture trends in 2016. These include:

  • the UN FAO’s Liberation project which promotes ecological intensification – increasing yields through ecosystem services, rather than external inputs – as a critical way of achieving more food security with less environmental damage; and
  • the Barilla Center for Food and Nutrition’s work on food sustainability, including it’s youth manifesto which aims to get young people involved

Recognition of the key role of women farmers, of food workers’ fights for fair pay and labour rights, and of the role of sustainable diets are also flagged up.
