FOODCoST aims to support the transition towards sustainable food systems by proposing a harmonising methodology to calculate externalities in climate, biodiversity, environmental, social and health along the food value chain.
The project will provide a set of improved and harmonised analytical instruments for valuation and internalisation of externalities to assess their direct and indirect impact, co-create solutions and provide guidance to policymakers, businesses, and other actors.
The overall objective is, thus, to redefine the value of food through tools, policies, and business models that point towards sustainable production and consumption in the food system.
Build a STAKEHOLDER PLATFORM supporting the transition towards a sustainable food system.
Create a harmonised methodology for the VALUATION of externalities and an EU-global database of externality data.
Develop a framework for the INTERNALISATION of externalities through policies, business models and strategies.
Assess the IMPACT of internalising externalities and outline the FOODCoST Roadmap.
