Montpellier Global Days for Science, Education and Innovation : Africa 2021
6 October 2021. Feed-Care-Protect: global issues and international expertise IPCC-IPBES-HLPE/CFS-One Health HELP
Science-policy interfaces are important because they provide scientific assessment and advice to policymakers, and usually comprise a broad diversity of international scientists with complementary expertise. A key function of SPIs is to assess the state of the scientific literature and translate that knowledge into a format that helps to inform the decision making process.2 This function is of critical importance for food systems – a policy area characterized by complexity, dynamic change, uncertainty, and contested interpretations.
Policy-relevant scientific assessment of food systems thus requires insights from multiple disciplines and perspectives. Several SPIs relevant to food systems already exist and were discussed during a panel at the Montpellier Global Days for Science, Education and Innovation.
