Scientific and Economic Foundations Report (forthcoming, April 2018)

The TEEBAgriFood ‘Scientific and Economic Foundations’ Report will address the core theoretical issues and controversies underpinning the evaluation of the nexus between the agri-food sector, biodiversity and ecosystem services and externalities including human health impacts from agriculture on a global scale. In essence it will set the theoretical context for the evaluation of these systems policy implementation.

It will argue the need for a ‘systems thinking’ approach, draw out issues related to health, nutrition, equity and livelihoods, present a framework for evaluation and describe how it can be applied, and identify theories and pathways for transformational change.

To date, over 130 global experts have contributed to the report since 2016. The report is expected to be released in April 2018. More information will be available in this space.
