New research on achieving food system sustainability

By Bridget Elliott on 17th September 2013
Found in: Research and Resources

A new paper published in the Journal of Cleaner Production looks at the different ways in which stakeholders conceptualise the food sustainability problem and what constitutes a desirable ‘solution.’ The paper highlights the emergence of three different perspectives on achieving food system sustainability and explores their underlying values. The role of life cycle assessment (LCA) in shaping these perspectives is outlined, and consideration given to how LCA could be oriented to clarify thinking and advance policy-relevant knowledge.

A new version of the EMEP/EEA air pollutant emission inventory guidebook has been published by the European Environment Agency (EEA). The new edition, which is essential for anyone working on air pollution emissions, updates the 2009 volume. The guidebook provides a general reference source for countries reporting air emissions inventory data under international agreements. It is also a key information source frequently used by researchers and modellers.

New research funded by Defra has assisted in the development of a new assessment framework to trace direct and indirect links between consumption in the UK and environmental impacts that occur due to production in other countries. The project analysed 12 commodities but the methodology can be extended to over 200 commodities, including agricultural products as well as many other products of non-agricultural systems, e.g. mining, forestry and fisheries.
