One of the most complex societal challenges is to achieve food and nutrition security and sustainable agriculture under a changing climate. Ensuring food and nutrition security in the long-term while containing global warming within 1.5 or 2°C, will require major changes on a societal-level and a systemic transformation of our food systems.
FOSC, the ERA‐NET Cofund on Food Systems and Climate, is a consortium of 28 international partners from Europe, Africa, and Latin America, which supports research that will contribute to meeting this challenge: it aims to initiate and push ahead transnational collaboration on the societal and systemic transition to sustainable and climate‐resilient food systems.
The first co-funded call of FOSC, launched in December 2019, focuses on food systems and climate. This call belongs to the FACCE-JPI 2020-onwards - Core theme 1 - An agricultural sector that contributes to climate neutrality; Core theme 2 - Sustainable & resilient agriculture; Core theme 3 - Nutrition-sensitive agricultural production for food security and Core theme 4 - Trade-offs and synergies between food production, ecosystems and climate.
