Adaptation of Diet to Mitigate Climate and Water Crises

Short Description

Understanding how undernutrition and malnutrition intersect with crises that impact freshwater sources and other environmental problems is essential for countries attempting to lessen the impacts of ecological harms on citizens. This 2019 study explores European, country-specific dietary shifts and changes in an attempt to mitigate the effects of climate and water crises. Evaluating the environmental footprints of plant foods and animal products, nine diets were modeled from the 140 study countries, considering factors like nutritional value, GDP, income and country-specific trade patterns and availability.
