Food systems are complex. Encompassing supply chains, environmental factors, individual factors and consumer behaviour. Looking at the system as a whole can be difficult, and that’s before external factors such as climate change, globalisation and trade are even considered. This is why the Food Systems Dashboard is such an impressive tool, allowing users to compare components of food systems across countries and regions. The dashboard can also help identify and prioritize ways to sustainably improve diets and nutrition, helping decision makers understand their food systems, identify their levers of change and help decide which ones need to be pulled.
