Article
Full-text available
The impacts of food systems on climate change are of growing concern as meat consumption and the soy-meat complex expand. This article explores contrasting ideas, proposals and narratives in the Brazilian context with its significant power asymmetries and identifies two broad discursive repertoires voiced by the private sector, civil society and go...
Article
Full-text available
The article analyses the Brazilian soy value chains using a justice-based, multi-scale approach following the international debate on just transition to sustainable and healthy food systems in the context of climate change. It highlights the challenges and limits to promote just transitions based on dominant global value chains, while assessing pri...
Article
Full-text available
In this article, we propose a framework of principles and criteria for just transitions in food systems. Climate mitigation activities are urgently needed in food systems, but can have damaging social, environmental, economic, and health impacts. Consequently, food system transitions can cause significant side effects across and beyond food systems...
Article
Full-text available
In view of numerous and far reaching sustainability challenges such as climate change, biodiversity loss, social inequalities (to name but a few), effective collaboration between science and society is not only desirable; it is imperative. Networks play an important role in this regard because they link researchers and other actors from civil socie...
Article
Just transition is gaining increasing attention. The need to consider social justice in sustainability transitions is finally being acknowledged. Research on this issue has, to date, mainly concentrated on energy systems. In this paper, we examine how the elaboration of dietary transition widens the spectrum of justice questions in sustainability t...
Article
Full-text available
Introduction Sustainable development and sustainability transformations have reached high urgency on national and international agendas and involve new knowledge and learning processes. Transdisciplinary co-production of knowledge as a research approach in combination with the methodological elaboration of theories of change have potential to suppo...
Article
Full-text available
An increasing number of voices highlight the need for science itself to transform and to engage in the co-production of knowledge and action, in order to enable the fundamental transformations needed to advance towards sustainable futures. But how can global sustainability-oriented research networks engage in co-production of knowledge and action?...
Article
Full-text available
We are facing a global food crisis: the percentage of people with malnutrition are increasing, along with devastating results for the social-ecological environments, showing the unsustainability of the currently dominant food systems. The complex set of foodrelated problems requires multidimensional perspectives, using inter- and transdisciplinary...
Article
Full-text available
Formalised knowledge systems, including universities and research institutes, are important for contemporary societies. They are, however, also arguably failing humanity when their impact is measured against the level of progress being made in stimulating the societal changes needed to address challenges like climate change. In this research we use...
Article
More sustainable systems of food production are urgently needed. The global community and all involved actors must go beyond focusing narrowly on quantities of food produced; they must simultaneously address interlinked issues of water scarcity, soil fertility loss, agrobiodiversity, climate impacts, equitable land access, labour standards, and oth...
Article
Full-text available
Abstract Food systems must become more sustainable and equitable, a transformation which requires the transdisciplinary co-production of knowledge. We present a framework of food sustainability that was co-created by academic and non-academic actors and comprises five dimensions: food security, right to food, environmental performance, poverty and...

Article
Full-text available
Participatory research approaches are often assumed to be effective for addressing sustainability problems that involve a substantial amount of complexity, uncertainty, and conflicting values. The adaptive and integrative character of these approaches engages various scientific and nonscientific actors in collective knowledge production processes....
Article
Full-text available
Transdisciplinary co-production of knowledge is widely credited with producing knowledge that can contribute to sustainability transformations, but there is little empirical evidence showing to what extent and through what mechanisms it is actually advancing sustainability. This article analyses how 31 transdisciplinary projects conceptualised the...
Article
Full-text available
Science-based initiatives generate particular changes towards sustainable development. But why and how does this work? Theories of change (ToCs) can help in understanding the theoretical assumptions and modes of knowledge production associated with these initiatives: ToCs trigger debate among the stakeholders and evaluators of an initiative regardi...
Article
Full-text available
Societal issues such as poverty, water scarcity, and food insecurity make it more important than ever for science to produce knowledge that is relevant to address serious challenges on the ground. A growing number of research funding programmes emphasize the need for transdisciplinary (TD) co-production of knowledge as one way of making research pa...
Article
Full-text available
Based on insights from an ongoing research project on food sustainability, we argue that discussing sustainable diets in isolation from food systems poses risks. Among these risks are making healthy diets exclusive, or ignoring externalities like biodiversity loss, land concentration, and encroachment on commons. Case studies from Bolivia and Kenya...
Article
This paper proposes a framework for dealing with the complexity of food systems for guiding implementation, monitoring and evaluation of Sustainable Development Goal number 2 ‘End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture’. The framework combines a food systems approach with systems analysis and modell...
Article
Full-text available
Der vorliegende Beitrag stützt sich auf das Teilprojekt Modellierung und befasst sich mit den Zielkonflikten und Synergien zwischen Produktions- und Umweltwirkungen der Schweizer Land- und Ernährungswirtschaft (L&E; vgl. Kasten «Ressourceneffizienz» S. 133). In diesem Teilpro- jekt wurde untersucht, wie sich die Schere zwischen Nah- rungsmittelbeda...
Article
In Switzerland, agriculture and the food industry are facing major challenges, as is society in general. The gap between desired and achievable levels of food production is growing wider, since ensuring sufficient food supplies for a growing population requires a constant increase in production while at the same time it is necessary to reduce the u...
