Projektinformationen

Food insecurity remains a problem for millions of people while its range and consequences have been aggravated by the recent food crisis. Those regions of the globe with sufficient quantity of food, such as the EU, suffer from quality and health concerns. In addition, climate change is threatening agricultural production in many parts of the world, and yet simultaneously fostered by agricultural production and animal husbandry. This project aims to shed light on these challenges for agrifood governance, in particular for the EU and Asia. Specifically, the project will identify the dominant actors and structures shaping the food security in rural areas, sustainable food lifestyles, and the agrifood-climate change interface. The aim of the planning activities is to expand the transdisciplinary group of researchers, to integrate the project team, and to explore the policy field. These activities will fertilize each other due to an institutionalized, frequent exchange of information between project participants and the exploratory research.
