Project: EZproject

Project Details


The FOODSECURE-project runs from March 1st 2012 until March 1st 2017. The main focus of the project is improving the resilience of the food system, by providing a means to mitigate risks and uncertainties in the world food system caused by economic and climatic shocks while providing for sustainable economic growth. The project provides an analytical  toolbox to experiment, analyse, and coordinate the effects  of short and medium  term policies,  thereby allowing for the execution of consistent, coherent, long-term  strategies with desirable consequences.

In the last phase of the project, the Navigator will be build, an easy to use  interface between stakeholders and state-of-the-art research results. The targeted user  group of the "Navigator" interface are policy makers and other stakeholders in EU and developing countries. These non-technical users will benefit from a specific dissemination strategy for providing access to the research results, with the aim of delivering guidance for defining long term FNS strategies.
