Dr. Tara Garnett initiated and runs the Food Climate Research Network at the Environmental Change Institute, University of Oxford. This is a network of over 2000 individuals, from across disciplines and sectors and from over 70 countries worldwide who share a common interest in food system sustainability. Tara’s work focuses on the contribution that the food system makes to climate changing emissions and how its impacts might be reduced, considering both technological and consumption-based approaches. She is particularly interested in the relationship between emissions reduction objectives and other social and ethical concerns, notably human health, livelihoods, and animal welfare.
