Water resources and climatic conditions are important in maintaining sustainable agricultural production. Clarifying the important role of food linking the water and carbon cycles promotes the development of sustainable agriculture. Different food consumption patterns, especially one involving a high proportion of animal-based foods, indirectly affect water consumption and green house gas (GHG) emissions. A diet with a high proportion of plant-based foods is confirmed to benefit the environment; reducing the current overconsumption of animal-based foods can both benefit human health and alleviate the climate and water crises. Furthermore, the implementation of an environmentally friendly diet requires consideration of nutrients, cost acceptability, and local food production conditions.
Providing affordable access to enough healthy and safe food for an ever-more-affluent and growing world population has become more challenging in the face of climate change, rising income inequality a
Since the first-ever tax on junk foods was passed in 2014 the same-day purchasing patterns and trends on the Navajo Nation have improved and more than one-third of shoppers who were aware of the Healthy Diné Nation Act (HDNA) legislation attributed healthier shopping habits to the legislation, particularly related to beverages.
The authors conclude improved water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH activities) were successful in contributing to improved dietary diversity in women. Interventions aimed at enhancing the diet and nutritional status of women during and after pregnancy should include relevant WASH components as essential elements in multisector nutrition programming.
The study presents a new approach to analyzing the relations between sustainability indicators, foods, and macronutrients and establishes that proteins, irrespective of the source of protein, are driving dietary environmental and economic impacts.

The results in this paper have implications for consumers and policy makers, as well as other food system actors. Consumers following individual strategies can make important contributions towards more sustainable food systems. To facilitate this shift, changes in food environments are needed and a coordinated action plan with coherent policies that targets a thorough redesign of the food system, including several of the proposed strategies, is needed to achieve large systemic effects. This could encompass suitable education measures, incentives, as well as rules for production, processing, retail, gastronomy, transport, and consumption.
Milk alternatives are compared from an environmental and nutritional point of view for more sustainable food systems.
This paper concludes that the SIVESNU (Sistema de Vigilancia Epidemiológica de Salud y Nutrición) surveillance platform is a critical tool for government and partners, addresses key data gaps, and provides high-quality data used to monitor and improve public health in Guatemala.
Aquaculture has been viewed as a potential pathway to healthy and sustainable diets by increasing global nutrient-rich food production while minimizing environmental impacts.
In the journey towards attaining the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), large scale organic farming has emerged as a strategy of increasing significance.
