As is well known, there have long been calls for agriculture and food production to become more sustainable in a global context of increasing population and living standards, climate change, and environmental degradation. According to the existing literature, this can be achieved through the development of innovative methods and tools to reduce resource use, material consumption, and waste generation while reversing the trend of biodiversity loss and ensuring sufficient, nutritious, sustainable, and affordable food for society. This general need, shared at the international political level, has now become overwhelmingly urgent as we recover from the crisis triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic and the conflict around Europe, which have exacerbated the effects of degrowth. For the Global North and South, a new economic model is needed that is more oriented toward equity, restructuring of production and consumption patterns, sobriety combined with full employment and social security, as well as food security and local agriculture. This is perfectly in line with the importance of food and agriculture in achieving the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals, all of which are directly or indirectly related to food, and in accelerating the transition to the 2030 Agenda.
In this general context, contributions of research and reflection, developed in different territorial contexts, are welcome.
Dr. Giuseppe Timpanaro
