Institute of Marine Research – Norway

Feeding a growing world population where all food production is under pressure from climate variability and change requires increased focus on aquatic food systems to implement sustainable pathways to reach the UN SDGs.

Aquatic foods, in particular seafood, comprise important sources of micro- and macro- nutrients essential for ensuring healthy diets, particularly for young children. ClimeFOOD will directly contribute to more sustainable and climate-resilient food systems, to the UN SDGs, and to outcomes from both the UN Ocean Decade and the UN Decade of Action on Nutrition.

Through a holistic food-systems approach embedded in a coherent open-access analytical framework, ClimeFOOD will develop and implement pathways for improving health under the challenges of climate change. As an open partner network, ClimeFOOD will address optimal nutritional yield from fisheries and aquaculture founded on sustainable ecosystems and viable blue bio-economies, while being particularly mindful of small-scale actors in LDCs.
