The axis you need to use is distribution of wealth(x-axis) & availability of resources(y-axis). Please look at images 1-6 to see clearly how both the x-axis and the y-axis are and what the 4 scenarios are. There are descriptions of what would happen in each scenario. You can use the other attachments as an example of how write this type of paper. Make sure to talk about all the 4 scenarios please
Build the scenarios based on Future Food Sustainability: what food challenges are associated with changing lifestyles and diets?
Rising demand for food and changing dietary preferences are related to trends that shape the evolution of food systems and pose a series of challenges for food and agriculture; e.g.:
• High calorie, low nutrient content of foods;
• High levels of food loss and waste;
• Lengthier food chains associated with an energy intensive food system;
• Poor links between farms, markets and consumers;
• Decline of local food markets due to rising number of supermarkets;
• Agricultural subsidies that encourage surplus food crop production;
• Plant disease and animal health issues;
• Changes in food handling and preparation;
• Food safety threats.
These challenges are likely to be compounded by uncertainties emerging from the intervention of governments and new legislation.
You are required to explore the effects of changing lifestyles and diets on the future sustainability of food systems by building ‘future food scenarios’ looking towards 2050. You will develop a number of qualitative scenarios that assess potential developments in the global food system and describe the possible future state of consumption patterns influenced by changing lifestyles and diets. The scenarios should be developed using the ‘axis of uncertainty’ approach taught in the lectures and illustrate the sustainability challenges and uncertainties around food system developments. Scenarios should reflect different assumptions about what is driving change within the food system (i.e. Distribution of wealth & Availability of Resources)
Drawing upon knowledge, experience of different members of the group and the academic (and grey) literature, address the following points:
• identify the direct and indirect drivers that might affect future food sustainability, focusing on factors affecting different consumption patterns;
• discuss plausible trends in these drivers;
• determine what these trends might mean for the future; and
• use the information gathered to build a set of 4 plausible scenarios (one for each quadrant of the axis), and examine the risks and opportunities these scenarios present for future food sustainability.
Your role
You are a foresight consultancy given the brief by the Food and Agricultural Organisation of the United Nations (FAO). FAO is committed to establishing policies that will make the transition to a sustainable food system a reality. It pledges to make safe and diversified healthy diets available to all, but recognises the significant challenges in achieving this goal. The FAO tasks you to produce future food sustainability scenarios that explore both challenges and opportunities related to changing lifestyle and diets towards 2050.
Some definitions and trends are important to help you focus your scenario project. Think about:
1. Definitions of food ‘sustainability’ and related consumption levels:
– what are the important sustainability considerations in terms of changing consumption patterns influenced by direct and indirect drivers?
– what specific foods need to be considered to examine differences in consumption patterns that impact food sustainability?
2. Trends and developments around future lifestyles and diets – what trends and developments around lifestyle and diets are important?
– what aspects of lifestyles and diets support food sustainability?
– what are the future challenges and opportunities?
