The global food system, with its massive carbon footprint and large-scale impacts on ecosystems and public health, must be transformed to sustainably meet the world’s steadily growing demand for food in the coming decades. The Political Economy of Food System Transformation: Pathways to Progress in a Polarized World, a new book co-edited by IFPRI’s Danielle Resnick and Johan Swinnen and published jointly by IFPRI and Oxford University Press, explores the complex dynamics around this much-needed transformation.

A November 14 book launch event, which attracted a large audience from around the world, examined the book’s implications for current food system issues and ways to pursue meaningful food policy decision-making reforms in today’s increasingly polarized contexts.
