The true cost of food: Driving food system transformation at local and global levels

About the event

Two reports on True Cost Accounting (TCA) by FAO and the Food System Economics Commission find over USD 10 trillion in hidden costs of the global food system. This figure exceeds current estimates of the food system’s contribution to the global economy. Other reports in the last year have compared the true costs and benefits of local or national food systems, such as the groundbreaking study of farming systems in Andhra Pradesh, India. Join us to learn from experts who will discuss key findings about the role of TCA in driving food system transformation at both global and local levels, and how these studies deliver a clear roadmap for government and business leaders to identify and scale solutions to address humanity’s most pressing challenges.
