520 This book delves into diverse local food systems and
critically assesses their ecological and societal benefits
and trade-offs, their limits and opportunities for
improving sustainability of food production, and framework
conditions which either hinder or promote their
development. More and more people with gradually meat
heavier diets will demand growth in food production,
whilst our increasingly industrialized and globalized agri
-food system has already caused serious sustainability
problems in the past. This calls for a change in the way
we produce, distribute and consume food. A re-emerging
debate on food security and food sovereignty seems to
support this quest. But what are the promising
alternatives to mainstream developments? Such a
discussion regarding sustainability of local food systems
requires a sound systemic understanding and thus invites a
socio-metabolic reading of local cases by analyzing the
nexus between material and energy flows as well as land
and time use. This approach is needed to complement the so
far mostly qualitatively-based local food studies.
Applying socio-metabolic approaches to local food systems
fosters a better understanding of promises and pitfalls
for sustainable pathways in the future.
