Summary IPES-Food is a panel, established in 2015, that works to shape debates on food system reform through policy-oriented research and direct engagement with policy processes around the world. The panel brings together environmental scientists, development economists, nutritionists, agronomists, and sociologists, as well as experienced practitioners from civil society and social movements.   IPES-Food’s work is guided by four principles: holistic approach that addresses food systems in their entirety, sustainability approach that includes environmental, health, social, cultural, and economic dimensions of food systems, political economy approach that recognizes the power relations and influences exercised by actors within the food system, and a democratic approach to knowledge that identifies the value of state-of-the-art research in the natural and social sciences, while recognizing the importance of experiential, indigenous and traditional knowledge.
