Food and Our Future: Sustainable Food Systems in Southeast Asia

  • This course will explore how natural resources are currently used to take the food we eat from the field or ocean to our plates.
  • Along the chain of steps from how food is produced to when it is consumed, a variety of earth’s natural resources, from land and water to biodiversity and fossil fuels, are used in many different ways.
  • During this course we’ll review the impacts of food systems and their activities, from production to consumption including waste, on human health, natural resources, and the wider environment.
  • After looking at the relationships between food systems, natural resources, the environment, and people’s well being, we’ll focus on how to think about and implement change.
  • We will further explore the food systems approach to natural resource use, and discuss policy and practice options for a transition towards more sustainable, resource-smart food systems.
