FEAST HQ WG2_Publications

A peer-reviewed paper “New pathways for governing food system transformations: a pluralistic practice-based futures approach using visioning, back-casting, and serious gaming” about the outputs from collaborative research in Kyoto with Astrid Mangnus and Joost Vervoort, Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development at Utrecht University, the Netherlands was published in Ecology and Society 24(4):2. <Abstract> The global environmental change that characterizes the Anthropocene poses a threat to food systems. Cities increasingly serve as the spaces where civil society, private actors, and local governments come together to strategize toward more sustainable food futures and experiment with new forms of food governance. However, much of the futures literature in the context of sustainability focuses …

FEAST HQ WG5_Publications

A research paper “the Estimation Method for the CO2 Emission of Cooking on Journal of Life Cycle Assessment in the Household” co-authored by Prof. Atsushi Inba, WG5 Chair, was published in the Journal of Life Cycle Assessment. Abstract : The visualization of CO2 emission in the lifestyle including food is thought recently to be essential for the sustainable society. In this paper, the estimation methods of the CO2emission for cooking in the household, especially for gas cooking such as “boil and steam”, “broil and stir-fry”, “deep fry(like tempra)” and “grill and oven” were developed based on the theoretical energy consumption to raise the food stuff temperature, which were calculated using their …
