RESAS 22-27: SRUC-b4-3 Understanding The Mismatch Between Domestic Consumption And Production In Scotland.

Project Details


This proposal addresses RQ 4 in Topic B4 of the original ITGF regarding the the mismatch between what is consumed within Scotland and what is produced. In this context, the purpose of the project is through an empirical analysis of large detail datasets, combined with qualitative work that will allow interaction with stakeholders to: (1) to generate new insights into the practical understanding into how current Scottish food production matches or differs with what Scottish households consume; (2) to use the information about the mismatch between local supply and demand to identify opportunities for increased food security; (3) to generate insights between what is produced and what should be consumed based on recommendations; (4) to identify how climate change may affect the local food supply and discuss how to deliver increased resilience.
