The COVID lockdown has affected food purchases and eating habits. In this regard, this short communication assesses the nutritional and environmental impacts of these changes during the COVID lockdown in Spain, by applying Life Cycle Assessment and an energy- and nutrient-corrected functional unit. Three environmental impacts were studied (Global Warming Potential, Blue Water Footprint and Land Use) and a total of seven weekly diet scenarios were designed: two pre-COVID diets for March and April in 2019 (MAR19, APR19), one COVID diet (COVID) and two alternative diets, one based on the National Dietary Guidelines (NDG) and another one on the Planetary Health Diet (PHD).

Deadline for submission: 1 March 2021


More than before, the region is facing unprecedented and interdependent environmental, economic and social challenges that affect food security, economic growth, production system and sustainability, and thus the livelihoods of all Mediterranean people.

The global health and economic emergency caused by Covid-19, the scarcity and irrational use of natural resources, climate change, urbanization phenomena and market globalization are among the main factors that have influenced the evolutionary processes of Mediterranean countries. These phenomena, albeit in a different way between the different countries, have provoked strong solicitation and changes in the agri-food production / processing patterns, as well as in the food consumption patterns and lifestyles in the Mediterranean region.
Manuscripts should be submitted online by registering and logging in to this website https://www.editorialmanager.com/nemed/default.aspx: click to submit to manuscript and select “SPECIAL ISSUE” as the Type of submission.
