“Systems thinking” is an oft-abused term these days, but essential when it comes to food
Systems approaches are easier said than done. You still have to make specific choices about specific policies or interventions at specific moments. Systems approaches are helpful descriptively, but I have a harder time finding the prescriptive advantages. I'd love someone to show me examples of how taking a systems approach changed their strategy, plan, investment, intervention, etc. It really should... but how?
Many thanks Sayama. Such an important article.
Need more research on food systems in Burma. As climate change starts kicking in, and the country reels from coup and counter-coup, food security is going to be a huge challenge.
