Farms. Food. Future.
Food systems: From Farm to Plate
In this month's episode, we focus on food systems. Kicking off we have Martin Frick, Deputy Special Envoy for the Food Systems Summit, who tells us what exactly a food system is. We then check in with IFAD’s Associate Vice President Meike van Ginneken about IFAD's perspectives on the summit and what it can bring to the debate. Next, we talk gender and cuisine with Brazilian Chef Bela Gil, who also tells us how chefs can use their influence to encourage sustainable consumption. We also hear more about the Karen people in Thailand, and what indigenous food systems can teach us. Plus, we have news on plastics, agriculture, and packaging, with a special report on food miles too. Finishing this edition, we get to hear from farmers themselves as they tell us all about how they fit into the food system today, with news from Asia Climate Week after that. This is Farms. Food. Future. – a podcast that’s Good for You, Good for the Planet and Good for Farmers brought to you by the International Fund for Agricultural Development.
