The project's overall purpose is to work with other impact valuation and true cost accounting initiatives to help food system actors enhance food systems to become more sustainable, resilient and restorative, and to deliver better health outcomes.
The FoodSIVI team:
Food system transformation can be enabled when the worlds of science and accounting and valuation collaborate closely with food systems users. The annual two-day FoodSIVI Oxford Meeting brings together academia, industry and civil society to make this happen. The 2020 FoodSIVI Oxford Meeting takes place on 30-31 March 2020.
On Monday (Day 1) of the Meeting the Natural Capital Finance Alliance will launch their report on Natural Capital Credit Risk Assessment in Agricultural Lending based on the Natural Capital Protocol. A registration option is available for the Launch only.
The Meeting will open with Pushpam Kumar, Chief Economist UN Environment and Mario Abela, Director Redefining Value, WBCSD on application in the food sector of the Natural Capital Protocol, and recently released, Social & Human Capital Protocol. The Third Meeting is in collaboration with the FReSH Initiative of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and the Externalities Working Group of the Global Alliance for the Future of Food (GAFF).
Impact Valuation, also termed true cost accounting, is an emerging method aiming to measure and value the environmental, social and health externalities produced by businesses and society. Its implementation is gaining momentum and its application to food systems is challenging. The Meeting brings together academia, industry and civil society to foster the research and collaborations needed to further impact valuation.
Forward momentum and targeting opportunities are the purpose of the Third Meeting. There will be working sessions on four themes on Day 2, and attendees will participate in each theme. You can download reports of the First Oxford Meeting and Second Oxford Meeting.
Registration for the event is now closed as the event is fully booked.
