Developing Tools to Assess Cost-Effective Equitable & Environmentally Sustainable Food Systems
Cornell University College of Agriculture and Life Sciences in Partnership with the Sustainable Food Trust
A team of graduates from Cornell University’s Agriculture and Life Sciences graduate program will undertake a research project for the Sustainable Food Trust, a non-profit organization that works to accelerate the transition to more sustainable food and farming systems that nourish the health of both people and planet. The student team will conduct research on approaches needed to ensure food producers are financially accountable for any negative impacts of their production systems on the environment, public health and social equity including gender, and appropriately awarded for equivalent beneficial outcomes. Cornell faculty will support and mentor the students in this initiative. Sustainable Food Trust will provide the tool and also support and mentor the students in this initiative.
