Oxford Handbooks

  • A scholarly yet accessible look at how society and legislators can put in place a sustainable food system founded on sustainable water ecosystems
  • The articles promote readers' understanding of how the way that they eat can damage the health of themselves and that of the planet, and how to eat and manage water resources sustainably
  • This volume's synthesis of regional and global overviews identifies the policy changes that need to be made to enable farmers to undertake their dual role of feeding a growing population and stewarding natural resources
  • Essential reading for scholars of food systems, food value chains, food and water politics, and agriculture; legislators; members of NGOs, development agencies, and the media; food consumers; and all those who operate in our food system
