The potential impact of dietary changes on health, the agricultural system and other environmental factors has only been studied to a limited extent. This study examines the large-scale consequences in the European Union of replacing 25–50% of animal-derived foods with plant-based foods on a dietary energy basis, assuming corresponding changes in production. It provides valuable insights to SDG target 2.3 to ensure sustainable food production systems by 2030, as well as SDG target 13.1 strengthening resilience and adapt to climate-related hazards.

With the global urban population now exceeding 50 percent, the inhabitants of cities are recognized as a major driver of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This paper describes the methodology and data used to determine greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions attributable to ten cities or city-regions. Identifying cities with better per capita performance than others may help to guide climate change policies and contribute to SDG 13.3 to improve education, awareness and human and institutional capacity on climate change mitigation and adaption.
