The globalized and industrialized current food system is unsustainable, with significant impacts on the environment and climate. It is highly responsible for environmental degradation in terms of emission of greenhouse gases, misuse, overexploitation and pollution of natural resources, degradation of ecosystems and loss of biodiversity, both terrestrial and marine. Food consumption across the globe causes about 37% of the total anthropogenic GHGs emissions (IPCC, 2019) and about 26% of humanity’s Ecological Footprint, while 70% of global freshwater withdrawals are used for agriculture. The Foodnected project is designed to promote the transition to sustainable and fair food systems in the Mediterranean region.
