Population growth, climate change and scarcity of resources are just three examples of the challenges that are facing the Swiss agri-food system. A wide range of stakeholders are affected, and the factors surrounding ensuring a sustainable supply of food are complex. This project is supported by the Swiss National Science Foundation and it uses environmental-economic modelling approaches to simulate potential development paths, providing a basis for decision-making in relation to the direction of the Swiss agri-food system. The main findings are summarized in this Summary Sheet and more information on the project can be found here.
While struggling with the livestock sector of the system dynamics model in this project, I had a major aha moment that I documented in a separate blog post.
