The importance of sustainable food systems following coronavirus (COVID-19)

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) has published an article titled ‘Why sustainable food systems are needed in a post-COVID world'. The article explains that food systems are vital to economic activity as ‘they provide the energy that we need to live and work’ and that the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has reemphasised their importance. Additionally, the article sets out the problems facing the global food system and the unique opportunity that has arisen ‘to transform the global food system’ when rebuilding economies following coronavirus. UNEP, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, and the World Food Program suggest four changes to the food system—resilient food supply chains, healthy diets, regenerative farming and conservation.
