Abstract

This article responds to the debates surrounding how best to merge sustainable food systems and sustainability goals in the context of biofuel production, industrial livestock operations, and peasant agriculture. Various new initiatives meant to improve the “sustainability” of agricultural production in the aforementioned areas stem from multiple crises facing the global food system. A critical look at some measures, however, reveals consequences that are unhelpful and/or problematic, particularly in addressing issues of equity and justice. This contribution examines arguments made in the three articles addressing the key topic of sustainable food systems in the face of global environmental change.
