Meat consumption as a wicked problem: evidence from data and policies

date
15.03.2018

The analysis of meat consumption globally reveals increasingly similar patterns, with serious consequences for the environment and the availability of resources. On the policy and dietary guidelines side, the measures to support more sustainable diets are still very limited in most countries, possibly hindering the development of a greater awareness in civil society. Meat consumption can be defined as a wicked problem and should be managed in that perspective, with all stakeholders acting together for the global common good. Academia has the potential to act as a catalyst of change in this change, also by promoting multidisciplinary and participatory research methods.
