Food Tank launched today

An interesting initiative has been launched today: Food Tank, the food think tank.

Based on the analysis that the current food system is ill suited to adequately serve the food needs of the world population in a sustainable manner, the project seeks to bring together farmers and producers, policy makers and government leaders, researchers and scientists, academics and journalists, and the funding and donor communities to collaborate on providing sustainable solutions for our most pressing environmental and social problems.

The objective is to show how the complex problems related to the food system – hunger, obesity, climate change, unemployment, and others – can be tackled by more research and investment in agriculture. In collaboration with the community, the initiative seeks to obtain a comprehensive perspective of the state of the system and to present successful cases of innovation which can help to find solutions to the problems we face.

For now, the website already presents some interesting basic facts about the world food system and much more other information about the project. It’s worthwhile to have a look!
