Climate adaptation and food quality: projects to strengthen the resilience of food systems from field to plate
Publié le
Calls

In Quebec, little is known about the vulnerabilities and effects of climate change on certain components of food systems (processing, distribution and consumption), or about adaptation solutions. 

Given the observed and expected intensification of climate change, it is vital to support the adaptation of food systems to climate change in order to ensure food secuerity. The resilience of food systems to climate change must therefore be strengthened, from field to plate.

That's why Ouranos and the Pôle bioalimentaire, powered by the Institut sur la nutrition et les aliments fonctionnels (INAF), are launching a joint call for projects to develop knowledge aimed at ensuring a quality food supply for Quebecers in the years to come, by exploring innovative solutions to climate change.
