Transforming the food systems of tomorrow
Cornell’s Food Systems & Global Change advances food system solutions for the health of people and the planet. We are a transdisciplinary alliance tackling the environmental and nutritional challenges facing the ways people grow, eat, and share food everywhere. Centered at Cornell University and networked with local and global partners, we engage at the frontiers of knowledge to design and support actionable progress towards healthier diets from sustainable food systems.
Who we are
"We develop equitable, science-based integrated solutions to solve the grand transformational challenges of food systems. We are at the heart of national and international initiatives creating positive change for planet, people and health."
- Mario Herrero, Director of Food Systems & Global Change
What we do
EAT-Lancet 2.0 - Modeling Workstream
Building on the findings of the first publication, the primary objective of the EAT-Lancet 2.0 is to produce a scientific update of the 2019 report, "Food in the Anthropocene: the EAT–Lancet Commission on healthy diets from sustainable food systems," by 2024. The Modeling Workstream, led by Mario Herrero, work to critically update the 2019 findings with newer models and data by better handling uncertainty and downscaling food system environmental limits to national scales.
We grapple with the vexing scientific and policy challenges of today and model sustainable food systems of tomorrow.
Connecting knowledge and insight to drive forward positive change for a liveable world.
