What We Do

The Blue Food Assessment (BFA) is an international joint initiative that brings together over 100 scientists from more than 25 institutions. The Stockholm Resilience Centre at Stockholm University and Stanford University are lead science partners and EAT is the lead impact partner. This interdisciplinary team supports decision-makers in evaluating trade-offs and implementing solutions to build healthy, equitable and sustainable food systems.

From science to policy to practice

The BFA originated from a need to better understand the role of blue foods in global food systems and management solutions. Learn more about the goals of this joint initiative.
