"DUALINE - Durabilité de l’alimentation face à de nouveaux enjeux
Questions à la recherche"

La durabilité de l’alimentation est aujourd’hui en question, au regard de ses effets sur l’environnement, la santé, l’équité sociale et l’économie. Des experts de l’Inra et du Cirad se sont mobilisés pour dresser l’état des lieux des systèmes alimentaires à l’échelle de la planète, en étudiant spécifiquement la transformation, la distribution et la consommation. L’originalité du projet duALIne est d’avoir traité les enjeux que pose l’aval des filières, de la sortie du champ à l’assiette du consommateur.

Food System Sustainability

As Western-style food systems extend further around the world, food sustainability is becoming an increasingly important issue. Such systems are not sustainable in terms of their consumption of resources, their impact on ecosystems or their effect on health and social equality. From 2009 to 2011, the duALIne project, led by INRA and CIRAD, assembled a team of experts to investigate food systems downstream of the farm, from the farm gate, to consumption. Representing a diverse range of backgrounds, spanning academia and the public and private sectors, the project aimed to review the international literature and to take account of the experts’ own expertise to identify major gaps in our knowledge. This book brings together its key conclusions and insights, presents state-of-the-art research in food sustainability and identifies priority areas for further study. It will provide a valuable resource for researchers, decision-makers and stakeholders in the food industry.
