Food systems for healthy and sustainable diets

04-06-2018 - 22-06-2018

By 2050 the world population is estimated to have grown to around 9.7 billion people . The global challenge is not only how to feed the growing population, but also how to provide a nutritious diet for healthy living that can be sustained for generations.
