Climate Change and Consumer Behaviour Working Group

The FSA has a strong interest in horizon scanning possible responses to climate change and understanding where it might impact its work. This working group helped to highlight and discover trends in climate change responses in order to aid the FSA in horizon scanning in a 2 phase project. Phase 1 involved holding an expert engagement workshop, to identify behaviours that consumers may engage in in response to climate change concerns. Phase 2 involved running a workshop with FSA policy and operational leads to understand implications of these identified behaviours across FSA areas of work, and mitigating activity currently underway. The final report ' The impact of climate change on consumer food behaviours: Identification of potential trends and impacts' is available below, under papers.
Following completion of this work the group has been paused to consider strategic need.
