Contributing empirical data and analysis to ground changes in food laws and policies in the Atlantic region.
Understanding any complex social-ecological system like food relies on a vast range of data of different types from different sources. But even as this information becomes more available, the drive toward “evidence-based” law and policy creates new resource demands and can shift the dynamics of who holds power to make decisions.
This project serves as a loose repository for data and analysis relevant to food laws and policies in the Atlantic region. Our focus is on data that helps us to discover and better understand the governance system for food. We aim to make data sources and analysis used in the project transparent and accessible.
