SecureFood

An integrated approach to enhance food systems resilience, advocating for food security and uninterrupted food supply

Flag of the European Union with the addition "Funded by the European Union"

Research domain:
Securing the world’s food supply and competitive supply chains
Project duration:
01.01.2024 - 31.12.2027
Investigated countries:
European Union

SecureFood adopts an integrated, systems-thinking approach that acknowledges and embraces the complexity of food systems, addressing them as an interconnected network of actors, elements, activities, processes, infrastructures, and essential services related to the production and delivery of food. The ultimate goal of SecureFood is to address the food security challenges, by creating an ecosystem of scientific knowledge, collaborative processes, and digital tools.

This ecosystem will provide evidence-based indications on the risks and vulnerabilities of different food value chains (grain, fruits and vegetables, fish and aquaculture products, milk and dairy products) in different geographic contexts, and will contribute in a structured manner to the safeguarding of food security before and during crises, and to the reinforcement of food systems resilience. The cornerstone of SecureFood will be a Food Systems Resilience Management Framework, with interlinked resilience and sustainability orientations, as well as a Resilience Governance Framework that draws on collaborative principles and adopts inclusive and participatory processes to ensure successful cooperation between stakeholders and experts.
