Second Stakeholder Core Group workshop

Purpose of the 2nd Stakeholder Core Group Workshop

This second SCG Workshop will introduce the latest scientific developments of the SUSFANS project. The updated Conceptual Framework, and the most recent progress on metrics selection and representation, will be presented.

Results will also be presented of

(i) consumer behaviour analysis;

(ii) metrics for dietary adequacy and environmental sustainability;

(iii) reviews of existing food system scenarios; and

(iv) case studies on

  • (a) proteins from livestock-fish supply chains and
  • (b) micronutrients from fruits and vegetables supply chains.

Parallel working groups will actively review and provide feedback on these preliminary results. The entire SUSFANS community will be invited to PPM, including three private sector parties in an advisory role. The SCG meeting will be about performance metrics for assessing sustainable food and nutrition security (FNS) in Europe; a review of FNS scenarios and foreseen case studies on sustainable nutrition and a first glance at the modelling of drivers.
