Land Use and Food Security in 2050: a Narrow Road

Agrimonde-Terra


M. De Lattre-Gasquet, O. Mora, C. Le Mouël

Edition 2018

The Agrimonde-Terra foresight proposes five exploratory scenarios of land use and food security in 2050.

Agrimonde-Terra’s scenarios also suggest that ensuring world and regional food and nutrition security in a context of climate change is a difficult, long and narrow path.

And if we were to eat locally?

And if we were to eat locally?

What are short food supply chains going to change in my everyday life


P. Philipon, Y. Chiffoleau, F. Wallet, N. Hulot

Edition 2017

For the past fifteen years or so, the “short supply chains” in marketing food products are reappearing extensively in France. Helped by food crises, today's consumers want to know where their food comes from and how it has been produced. The book answers clearly practical questions raised - where can I find these products? Are they more expensive, do they taste better? What is the difference between an AMAP (association supporting small farming) and a farm shop? What is the environmental impact? Eat locally: ultimately, is this or is this not a “good idea”?
