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.
