The true value of food
Current food prices don’t cover all benefits and costs related to food production and consumption. Simultaneously, trade-offs between various environmental effects as well as nutritional value complicate consumer food choices. What would be needed to progress towards internalising these externalities while assuring healthy, nutritious, and sustainable food is affordable for consumers and profitable for producers?

Building resilience to the current global food crisis
The world's food supply system is experiencing a series of shocks resulting from the global pandemic, the Ukraine crisis, and from the climate crisis. Food shortages and soaring prices have resulted. The massive disruption of supply chains is likely to continue and, in some cases, worsen. Food security is often discussed but the time to build resilience has arrived in order to protect our global food system and all global citizens.
