Sustainability Around the World is kicking off 2021 with Brent Loken, Global Food Lead Scientist at WWF Global Science, to discuss his landmark work on EAT-Lancet Commission on Food, Planet, Health, the first full scientific review of what makes a healthy diet from a sustainable food system, and which actions can facilitate food system transformation.
Together with 36 other world-leading scientists from across the globe, Brent helped to find key actions to feed a future population of 10 billion people a healthy diet, while preserving our planet. He is currently working on several projects to translate these global targets into country and city level targets to help achieve the Paris Agreement. One notable work is Planet-based diets, a scientific report that assesses the impact of dietary shifts in 147 countries around the world.
