ACTIONABLE FRAMEWORKS FOR FOOD SYSTEMS TRANSFORMATION

Profound changes in the way food is grown, processed, distributed, consumed, and wasted over the last several decades have led to increasing threats to a future of food that is sustainable, equitable, and secure, particularly when coupled with climate change, species extinction, increasing globalization, and shifting global economics, politics, and demographics.

“Frameworks for Transformation” create new ways of thinking about how to get to a better system. By changing the framework, we change the paradigm, we change the perceptions, and we change the actions and behaviors that flow from the framework. As we watch COVID-19 travel a well-worn path of inequity worldwide, these Actionable Frameworks for Transformationcan play a key role in helping to move us from the status quo toward positive visions for the future.
