The Planetary Health Diet in Theory and Practice

Global population growth and climate change are major challenges, putting more pressure on natural resources and food production. However, the current global food system (production + consumption) does not operate in a way to solve the challenge, making a large-scale transition at all stages of global food supply chains indispensable.

There exist a range of possible interventions along food production and consumption side, resulting in better nutrition status, more climate resilience of food systems and less GHG emissions – in other words, climate-smart nutrition.

This new publication by GIZ focuses on dietary shifts, first conceptually, then by providing a case study from Kenya. Moreover, it gives practical advise how policy makers can integrate climate change considerations in nutrition agendas and nutrition considerations in climate change agendas.
