Sponsored Satellite Program: How Do You Measure Sustainability? Opportunities for Consistent and Holistic Metrics to Support Food Systems Transformation
Sponsored By: National Dairy Council
This Sponsored Satellite Program was originally presented at NUTRITION 2023.
There is an urgent need for global food systems transformation to realize a future where the health of people and the planet reaches its full potential. Paramount to this vision is the ability of stakeholders across sectors to understand how dietary choices impact food systems throughout all domains of sustainability. While significant steps have been made to measure and evaluate how our food supply impacts environmental sustainability, employment of metrics and indicators to understand the complementary roles of nutrition/health, economics and/or societal considerations within this context is lacking.
This session discusses the role of plant- and animal-source nutrition on population health, with a focus on frameworks that can help accurately capture these important contributions. Limitations and best practices for designing frameworks to better reflect unintended trade-offs that need to be considered will be discussed.
This Sponsored Satellite Program includes the following presentations:
- Understanding the Role of Dietary Diversity in Sustainable Food Systems
- An Assessment of Frameworks That Inform Global Commitments To Advance Food System Transformation
- “Modeling” the Road Ahead: Gaps and Opportunities in Developing Robust Sustainability Measurement Tools for Evidence-Based Decision Making
