Applying Behavioural Science Across the Food System

The global food system has an enormous impact on our planet, contributing significantly to climate change and environmental degradation. Conflict, environmental crises, and emergencies are also making food systems fragile. Urgent reform is therefore needed to make food systems more resilient. However, the transition to a more resilient food system will not happen without a better understanding of local contexts, human behaviour and opportunities for change at individual, social and societal levels. In this session, four UN organisations – FAO, IFAD, UNICEF, and WFP – presented and discussed examples of where behavioural science has been used in practice across the whole food system to improve outcomes.
