Alan Marson's curator insight, June 14, 4:00 PM

From the International resource Panel 2016 - The Food Systems working group of the International Resource Panel has prepared a comprehensive scientific assessment of the current status and dynamics of natural resource use in food systems and their environmental impacts. The IRP identifies opportunities for Resource Smart Food Systems responding to policy-relevant questions like what do sustainable food systems look like from a natural resource perspective? How can resource efficiency improvements be made to enhance food security? How to steer transition towards sustainable food systems?
The report looks at food as a crucial connection point (a ‘node’) where various societal issues coincide, such as human dependence on natural resources, the environment, health and wellbeing. Rather than looking separately at resources such as land, water and minerals, the IRP has chosen a systems approach. The report looks at all the resources needed for the primary production of food, as well as for other food system activities (e.g. processing, distribution) considering not only the set of activities, but also the range of actors engaged in them and the outcomes in terms of food security, livelihoods and human health.

This eco-village is designed to be fully self-sufficient, from energy to food to waste | Vertical Farm - Food Factory | Scoop.it
RegenVillages, which is a spin-off company of Stanford University, is working on a pilot development of 25 homes in Almere, Netherlands, beginning this summer, with the aim of integrating local energy production (using biogas, solar, geothermal, and other modalities), along with intensive food production methods (vertical farming, aquaponics and aeroponics, permaculture, and others) and 'closed-loop' waste-to-resource systems, along with intelligent water and energy management systems.

Getting ready for the #population boom and working with limited #resources.

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, June 6, 9:57 PM
Intriguing idea that could lead to food and resource self-sufficiency for many areas of the world. Hopefully, this concept will spur our local, state, and federal government to get serious about self-sufficiency.  We should be able to care for ourselves without being dependent on unfriendly governments to supply us with raw materials and fuel.

Signs of a Growing Movement to Reduce Food Loss and Waste | World Resources Institute

Signs of a Growing Movement to Reduce Food Loss and Waste | World Resources Institute | Vertical Farm - Food Factory | Scoop.it

An estimated one-third of all food is lost or wasted from farm to fork every year globally; This amounts to about $940 billion per year in economic losses; Lost and wasted food consumes one-quarter of all the water used by agriculture; It requires land area the size of China to grow; and It contributes 8 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. If food loss and waste were a country, it would be the third-largest emitter, behind China and the United States.
