Check out Food Tank’s piece exploring the true cost of our food system HERE!
This piece explores a forthcoming report by the U.N. Environment Initiative on The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity for Agriculture & Food (TEEBAgriFood). This ground-breaking report presents a new framework to understand, evaluate, and manage the true costs and benefits of agriculture and food systems—from farm to fork to disposal. The report and its evaluation framework, funded by the Global Alliance for the Future of Food, aims to inform policymakers, researchers, and citizens of these real and unaccounted for costs of our food system.
