Strengthening the food systems governance evidence base: Supporting commensurability of research through a systematic review of methods

This document is a sytematic review of food systems governance indicators. It was undertaken by the Consultative Group on International Agriculture Research (CGIAR)’s Research Programme on Climate Change Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS).

Its purpose is for archival records and is confined to details of the review method and results, with framing and interpretation and implications of results excluded. It was intended as a response to a lack of commensurability of existing research on food systems governance.

It was proposed to address this knowledge gap through proposing core indicators to be used in future research, which it is hoped will be adopted in a more consolidated second generation of research on food systems governance designed to support subsequent comparison and aggregation of results.

This core set of indicators are to be assembled through a systematic review of literature.
