Transformation of our food systems – the making of a paradigm shift
A decade on: a critical new book by United Nations’ World Agriculture Report
(IAASTD) members calls for an accelerated transformation of our food systems
The COVID-19 pandemic exposes sharp injustices and system wide failures of today’s prevailing food and agriculture systems – injustices that had already been accelerating over the past decade, which has proven to be the most destructive period of food production and consumption in modern history. In their new book “Transformation of our food systems – the making of a paradigm shift”, 40 international experts describe the highlights and trends in food production since 2009, when the ground breaking IAASTD report was published, starting a paradigm shift in the perception of the global food system.
