The authors and the Foresight Group of the Standing Committee of Agricultural Research (SCAR) presented the 5th Foresight Exercise during a two-day virtual SCAR conference organised by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research under the German Presidency. The 5th SCAR Foresight Report is dedicated to “formulate an answer to these questions: “But to make change happen, what knowledge do we need and how to use it?”.
“Our aim is to show, to the European Commission, the EU member states and associated countries, where current trends are pointing on diet, farming, environment and related domains. From there, we analyse how we can get to a better world, focusing on three main routes, or transitions: improving diet and nutrition, increasing circularity in the food system, and restoring lost biodiversity.”
The report, subtitled ‘Natural resources and food systems: Transitions towards a ‘safe and just’ operating space’ and the factsheet is available here, or via the European Commission website.
