Abstract
There have been four such SCAR foresight reports since 2007 - looking at the challenges facing agriculture overall; resilience and crisis in agriculture and food systems; resource scarcities; and the bioeconomy. Each has led to new EU initiatives to address the issues raised. This fifth report takes a somewhat broader view, reflecting the mounting urgency of our food, agriculture, environmental and health problems. The focal point: How to get to “a safe and just operating space” for society, through better management of natural resources and food systems? The report focuses on ways and develops recommendations for a research and innovation programme how to achieve three main transitions: 1) sustainable and healthy diets for all; 2) a circular bioeconomy; 3) diversifying agriculture and food systems. More knowledge and better policies in these three transitions will lead to a more resilient EU and global food system.
