About the collection

Nutrition Journal is calling for submissions to our collection on Climate-friendly diet for healthier planet. During the last years sustainable nutrition is receiving increasing attention. Currently more than three billion people are malnourished, while at the same time many of the earth’s 7 billion inhabitants consume low quality diets. Moreover, the world’s population is rapidly increasing, and it is estimated that approximately 10 billion people will live on our planet by 2050. It is well established that the food systems and our dietary habits have a serious impact on the environment. More specifically, agriculture is the largest cause of global environmental change. Sustainable Diets are diets of low environmental impact that improve food and nutrition security and contribute to healthy life for both present and future generations. Sustainable diets protect and respect biodiversity and ecosystems, and at the same time optimise natural and human resources, while they are not only culturally acceptable, accessible, economically fair and affordable but also nutritionally adequate, safe and healthy. Transitioning to a sustainable food system that can provide access to healthy diets for the whole population by 2050 is an unprecedented challenge.

This article collection is calling for papers investigating the implementation of sustainable dietary patterns both for healthy individuals and persons with non-communicable diseases, the factors that enhance and the barriers for the adoption of climate-friendly diets by various population groups and the impact of the adoption of those dietary patterns.
