Science for environmental sustainability

The JRC supports EU Member States in implementing environmental policies and participates in international efforts to promote the sustainable use of resources and improve land-use management. This report describes the work of the JRC in support of sustainable development. It shows how its tools, methods, analyses and activities contribute to a better understanding, monitoring and anticipation of the complex interactions between human activity and the natural environment. In this way, the JRC supports the development and implementation of policies that protect the global environment and ensure that strategic resources (water, land, forests, food and minerals) are managed in a more sustainable manner for the benefit of present and future generations, within and outside the EU.

Science for food

The purpose of this report is to present the JRC's scientific support to EU's "from farm to fork" policy which ensures Europeans enjoy safe and nutritious food, while facilitating the food industry to work under the best possible conditions. It also presents JRC research on global food security – a growing challenge for researchers and policymakers alike when over 800 million people face hunger worldwide and food demand is expected to rise by 60% by 2050.
