2019-20 Scholars Project: Climate policy and climate-friendly diets: Implications for health, environment, and equity

Food production is a major contributor to climate change. Animal agriculture is an especially large source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, leading many environmental advocates to urge diets that eschew or reduce the consumption of meat, dairy, and eggs. Dr. Chan will investigate how a shift toward more plant-based diets will affect the environment, public health, and equity.
