National Food Strategy #4: The “irreconcilables”

In our horizon scanning project report, Back from the Future, page 8 listed what we’d termed “the irreconcilables“, some of which came up again during the workshop discussions on 3rd October.

Are they irreconcilable? What else, if anything, needs to be added? What is the role of a National Food Strategy in delineating a means to balance  the trade-offs inherent within them? What is the role of Government? And what professional expertise should Government call upon?

The page is replicated below. Although every word carries great meaning, you can skim read the emboldened words to get much of what’s there.
