REPORT: 'Unravelling the Food-Health Nexus

IPES-Food published its second thematic report in October 2017, identifying the many impacts of food systems on human health. 

• The report reviews the latest evidence on the whole range of health impacts associated with food systems around the world to provide a full picture.

• The multiple, interconnected pathways that generate health impacts and the practices they trace back to are identified.

• The report examines the political economy of food systems: why evidence gaps persist, why negative impacts are systematically reproduced, and why certain problems are not politically prioritized.

The paper, commissioned by the Global Alliance for the Future of Food, is intended to complement the work being undertaken to capture the true costs and benefits of food systems under the TEEBAgriFood project (The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity for Agriculture and Food).
