There is an elephant in the room called undernourished population worldwide. It is the population that has no access or wealth to healty food resulting undernutritent, overnutritent and micronutritent deficiencies. As a matter of fact, about 815 million people are chronically cacotrophic. (FAO et al., 2017) over two billion people are facing deficiencies of micronutrient like vitamin A – zinc – iodine- iron etc. (2016 Global Panel on Agriculture and Food Systems for Nutrition); and nearly two billion people are obese (IFPRI, 2016; WHO, 2016). A rapid increase of heart disease, diabetes related to diet- that have passed infectious diseases by number, as the number one cause of mortality at global level (WHO, 2014) is unevidible result of insufficient nutrition. FAO’s most recent analysis (FAO, 2017) forsees that 653 million people will remain undernourished globally by 2030. These failue of the food system needs transitioning for people to get enough nutrition no matter what the ecological or economical circumstances are. (UNEP, 2016). So it is obviously clear that we need some radical transition linking arms with sustainability in the agro-food system (WWF, 2016).
Here is a review named “Research on agro-food sustainability transitions: A systematic review of research themes and an analysis of research gaps” for you to read.
