Planetary Health inquiry

The concept of ‘planetary health’ is particularly useful in regard to the food system, a sector across which human health and the health of our planet and the ecosystems it maintains most closely overlap. In 2016 the UK food system contributed approximately 10% of our yearly Greenhouse Gas emissions, and globally our food system drives deforestation, biodiversity loss and freshwater use. Adopting the right strategies for land use in the UK will determine outcomes for both public health and the UK’s contribution to wider climate change.
