Food System and Climate (FOSC): Assessing the impact of climate change on food and nutrition security and designing more sustainable and resilient food systems in Europe and beyond

Climate change will affect food security: food availability, food accessibility, food utilisation and food systems stability. Designing sustainable food processes under climate change evolution is complex, encompassing many sectors. The EU-funded FOSC project is the ERA-NET Cofund on Food Systems and Climate. It will implement a range of joint activities to contribute to the creation of a strong and effective research and innovation network between Africa, Europe, and Latin America, as well as the coordination and synergism between national, international and EU research programmes relevant to food security under climate change. It will assess climate change-related risks for food value chains, reduce volatility in agri-food production, and develop novel approaches to valorise side streams and reduce food waste.
