Territorialized approaches for a general understanding of food system performance

  • Comparison of the different types of food systems, particularly on a broad spatial scale; the same type of comparisons on a local scale in metropolitan territories, are planned as part of the #3Perf priority
  • Analysis of transitions in agricultural production systems and of the sharing and adoption of innovation
  • Development and sharing of multi-criteria and multi-field methods which take into account the promotion of co-products of the agrifood industry
  • Innovation in food systems to reduce loss and waste: global strategies and adaptation to local contexts

The AlimH  and SAD  divisions are contributing to this thematic subarea by carrying out comparisons of different food systems at a broad spatial scale; these comparisons are focused on productivity and environmental impacts. The divisions are also examining how such food systems can be folded into existing sustainable regional food systems in connection with activities on a local scale associated with #3Perf thematic area. The AlimH , EA , MIA , PHASE , and SAE2  divisions, as well as the GISA  metaprogramme, are all involved in developing multicriteria assessment methods that account for nutrition, health, product quality, and product transformation efficiency at different scales. The GA  division is focused on matching production to local conditions. The MICA  and SAE2  divisions and the MEM  and GloFoodS  metaprogrammes are seeking to develop novel food systems that utilize innovative food resources and that are less wasteful; one aspect of this work is exploring how to better exploit coproducts. In this research context, the EcoServ  metaprogramme looks at trade-offs among services given the objectives of different stakeholders.
