Transition to climate smart and circular food systems

The European Agriculture and Fisheries Policy (ELVV) directorate of the Ministry of LNV is responsible for policy formulation on food and nutrition security (FNS) and international agri-business. This directorate is challenged to implement the ministrys vision on circular agriculture in an international context.

Based on existing literature conceptualising the food system approach (e.g. Van Berkum et al., 2018; WR KB 2019-2022 program Understanding trade-offs between sustainable and healthier diets) this research will further develop a conceptual framework, narrative and options for policy interventions (by Dutch policy makers, agricultural counsellors) to promote circular agriculture in an international context, while placing the circularity objective in the context of the Dutch food security policy.
