The overall aim is to translate both the actual and recommended dietary patterns in EUREGIO into quantitative measures of environmental and health impact, providing key decision makers within the three EUREGIO provinces with accurate cost-benefit analysis of ameliorating the environmental impact of food production and improving the nutritional quality of the foods consumed.

We will develop a regional specific life cycle inventory database for food and agriculture, expanding the scope of assessment beyond existing measures of environmental impact (e.g. green house gas emissions) to include ecological biodiversity, microbial biodiversity, nutritional and health related measures by estimating the local economic burden of failing to take on healthy eating guidelines and the health related value of access to locally produced, sustainable food products of high nutritional quality.
