Biovision Foundation / A decade on: A critical new book by UN's World Agriculture Report (IAASTD) members calls for an accelerated transformation of our food systems
ZURICH, Sept. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet / --

It is perfect timing: In mid-October the world will discuss the topic.

A ground breaking book [] 
has been published today to support governments, NGOs and the wider public as 
they make vital choices that impact the future direction of food production 
across the globe. The book "Transformation of our food systems - the making of 
a paradigm shift" written by a team of 40 international experts 
[], is 
being published in the run-up to this year's only virtual High Level Special 
y-and-nutrition/en/] of the UN Committee on World Food Security (CFS), where 
for the first time agroecology will be at the centre of discussions and where 
decision-makers will also reflect about global efforts needed to "build back 
better" after COVID-19. The book describes major food production trends and 
impacts since 2009 and clearly illustrates, from a variety of perspectives, 
that the agroecological approach is by far the most important and fundamental 
pathway to redesign food production systems post Covid.

and editors will take part. The first will be on food sovereignty and 
malnutrition, from undernourishment to obesity: What solutions are available, 
what blocks them and which commercial interests shape the approach? Check here
