Exploring the Impact of Increasing Temperatures and Greenhouse Gases on Nutritional Quality, Safety, and Distribution of Foods: A Workshop


Project Scope:

An ad hoc planning committee will organize a one-day workshop that explores the evidence on the range of outcomes, including balancing potential risks and benefits, resulting from changing environmental conditions, specifically increasing temperatures and greenhouse gases, on the nutritional value and availability of foods that contribute to healthy dietary patterns. The workshop will also explore issues related to risk of contamination of foods by pathogenic bacteria, viruses, and parasites; and the implications of changing environmental conditions on the robustness of the food supply for meeting the nutritional requirements and health goals for populations, both domestically and globally. A workshop proceedings and proceedings-in-brief will be prepared by a designated rapporteur in accordance with institutional guidelines.
