One of the most significant lifestyle changes with severe environmental and health consequences being witnessed in the developing Asia is in the form of changes in food consumption behaviour of the people. Recognizing the importance of arresting the negative trends early in the stage, the project aims to address the changing food consumption behaviour towards healthy and sustainable choices by a) enhancing sustainable food production in rural, peri-urban and urban areas, b) by establishing ‘Food Info-Marts’ that become the centre pivot connecting all actors for sustainable production, supply and consumption of food through the Food Info-Channels and Food Resource Channels, c) establish Food Resource Channels that promote closed-loop resource circulation through recycling food and crop waste as compost for use in production areas (urban, peri-urban and rural areas), d) establish Food Info-Channels that connect producers and consumers through providing information on consumer preferences, help producers tailor their production choices to the food preferences, d) educate and train food producers on sustainable food production practices, and e) educate and train consumers on sustainable and healthy food choices and food waste minimization.
