An exciting opportunity to be part of the Critical Decade for Climate Change – Leverhulme Doctoral Scholars programmeat UEA Norwich
TRANSFORMING DIETS FOR ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY THROUGH EXPERIMENTAL INTERVENTIONS
Our global food system is responsible for about a quarter of global carbon emissions. Transformation of this system to lower the rates of emissions is therefore a critical part of any effective solution to meet climate change targets. The role of human diet is crucial, with a shift to a plant-rich diet potentially able to cut projected emissions by about half in this sector by 2100. This PhD research project will seek to understand potential drivers of dietary changes that are aimed at reducing carbon emissions in different countries.
This fully funded scholarship will have engagement with world-class research centres including the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, the Norwich Institute for Sustainable Development (NISD), the Centre for Behavioural and Experimental Social Science (CBESS) and us at Food Databanks, Quadram Institute.
