Abstract: Identifying transformative pathways to sustainable and just food systems is a challenge for research and policy. This project aims to investigate how community food networks address inequalities in food access by advancing understandings of food justice and governance. The project expects to generate new knowledge on community food networks' visions for sustainable food production and consumption in Australia, using case studies, participatory research and innovative future scenarios. Expected outcomes include improved dialogue between food system actors and lessons for governance. This should provide significant benefits for policy makers and civil society as they seek to enhance implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.
