Abstract

Transforming food systems to make them healthier, more sustainable and inclusive is closely interconnected with the goals and ambitions of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and leaving no one behind. The importance of making food systems more equitable and sustainable has become critical and is a key driver behind the movement to promote food systems transformation. By shedding light on the existing structural weaknesses and inequalities inherent in existing food systems, the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has made this transformation an ever-more pressing priority. Although different readings of the crisis and proposals for solutions exist (eg Clapp et al, 2020), all stakeholders agree that action is urgently needed. An equitable and sustainable transformation can only happen by prioritising the long-standing feminist demands, underpinned by calls for the realisation of women’s rights and socio-environmental justice. The paper presents an initial list of cross-disciplinary methodological implications for research and action, and questions that might help us to advance the trajectory to achieve inclusive, healthier and more sustainable food systems.
