The half-day symposium, part of the international congress in Granada, begins at 13.30 on 15 September in the Machado and Picasso rooms in the Granada Conference Centre.
Sustainable food systems and diets are gaining attention from the scientific community and policymakers. A book co-published by Bioversity International and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN is redefining what sustainable diets are. “Sustainable diets respect ecosystems and are culturally acceptable, accessible, economically fair and affordable; are nutritionally adequate, safe and healthy; and optimize the use of natural and human resources.” Bioversity International, in partnership with the Daniel and Nina Carasso Foundation has also published a technical brief on the metrics of sustainable diets.
'Sustainable Food Systems for Food Security and Nutrition' will be the focus of World Food Day on 16 October 2013. ..."
