Last January 25, 2017, the journal Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems published an article authored by Institute of Philippine Culture (IPC) Research Associate Czarina Saloma, and University of Lausanne professors Marlyne Sahakian and Tiphaine Leuzinger. Titled “Uncovering changing prescriptions and practices around organic agriculture in Metro Manila, the Philippines,” the article is a product of the IPC institutional project “(Un)Sustainable Food Consumption Dynamics in South/Southeast Asia: Changing patterns, practices and policies among ‘new consumers’ in India and the Philippines,” which was done in cooperation with the Industrial Ecology Group at the University of Lausanne. In the journal article, Sahakian, Leuzinger, and Saloma explore the sustainability of organic food production and consumption in the Philippines.
In 2016, the (Un)Sustainable Food Consumption project researchers launched two short films on food consumption (“Eating out and food waste in Metro Manila” and “Eating in and food waste in Bangalore”). The project team also announced the publication of their book “Food Consumption in the City: Practices and Patterns in Urban Asia and the Pacific,” which may be purchased through the Routledge website.
