EAT-Lancet Report: Healthy Diets from Sustainable Food Systems (2019)

This report is based on an extensive evidence-based review conducted by the EAT-Lancet Commission.  “EAT is a non-profit dedicated to transforming our global food system through sound science, impatient disruption and novel partnerships.  EAT is a non-profit founded by the Stordalen Foundation, Stockholm Resilience Centre and the Wellcome Trust to catalyze a food system transformation.”  EAT is governed by a Board of Trustees as well as an Advisory Board consisting of representatives from academic partner institutions and “experts from the food service industry, politics, international development, finance, civil society and media.”  

Conclusion from the report:  The global adoption of healthy diets from sustainable food systems would safeguard our planet and improve the health of billions. How food is produced, what is consumed, and how much is lost or wasted all heavily shape the health of both people and planet. The EAT-Lancet Commission presents an integrated global framework and for the first time, provides quantitative scientific targets for healthy diets and sustainable food production. The Commission shows that feeding 10 billion people a healthy diet within safe planetary boundaries for food production by 2050 is both possible and necessary. The data are both sufficient and strong enough to warrant immediate action.
