OFSP partners agreed on a 10 year duration. In order to structure our work, we developed two Core Areas and defined 8 deliverables for the first 5 years period with which we want to contribute making food systems more sustainable.

Here our Core Areas:

Core Area 1 – Conceptualizing and modelling Sustainable Food Systems

  • organic as a model for sustainability
  • converting existing diets to more sustainable diets
  • engagement of actors – those connected along the value chains, researchers, policy makers, consumers, educators
  • assessment of and disseminating methodologies

Core Area 2 – Sustainable Food Systems in practice

  • state-of-the-art of the existing case studies
  • identifying and developing new cases
  • start-up/implementation of new SFS
  • learning and improvement of SFS
