Ahmedabad: A group of researchers from the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Ahmedabad will represent India at the FABLES consortium.
The Food and Land Use Coalition — Food, Agriculture, Biodiversity, Land-Use and Energy (FABLES) consortium will involve top knowledge organisations from 20 countries to develop decision-making tools and long-term pathways towards sustainable food and land-use systems, reported ABP Education.
IIM Ahmedabad professor Ranjan Kumar Ghosh will spearhead the team of researchers for the FABLE pathways.
“The FABLE Pathways presents two pathways for food and land-use systems for the period 2020-2050: Current Trends which represents the Business as Usual scenario and a Sustainable, more ambitious pathway. These pathways examine the trade-offs between achieving the FABLE targets under limited land availability and constraints to balance supply and demand at national and global levels within a global partial equilibrium model— the Model of Agricultural Production and its Impact on the Environment—MAgPIE developed by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK),” a statement issued by the IIM Ahmedabad stated.
