Abstract

This policy brief was prepared in support of the Austrian EU Presidency to explore how food systems can combine diet-related health with environmental and economic policy goals. It builds on considerable earlier work by analysing the connections between different policy goals and between policy goals and food systems. Through this process, the authors identify 3 core aspects of food systems functioning which would need to connect (economic benefits for farmers and businesses derived from the production and delivery of nutritious food using sustainable methods) in order to produce co-benefits.
