Berlin-Brandenburg is facing a challenge: how can we use agricultural land efficiently and at the same time ensure a sustainable food supply?

The KOPOS Policy Brief "The BIG FIVE" offers solutions to this question and presents five key recommendations for action. These range from the integration of food policy into public services of general interest to the promotion of inter-municipal cooperation. The focus is on the sustainable use and safeguarding of agricultural land and the strengthening of regional food systems. The report is an important resource for decision-makers at state and municipal level and offers concrete approaches for promoting sustainable development in the capital region.
