Abstract

In the agri‐food systems context, understanding and measuring sustainability and resilience seems particularly relevant as countries appear to struggle with implementing the full range of official SDG indicators in preparation towards the fulfilment of the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development (United Nations, 2015). Regarding resilience of food systems, SDG‐2 proposes target 2.4. The aim of this target is to ensure, by 2030, sustainable food production systems and implementation of resilient agricultural practices that “increase productivity and production, that help maintain ecosystems that strengthen capacity for adaptation to climate change, extreme weather, drought, flooding and other disasters and that progressively improve land and soil quality” (United Nations, 2017b). Thus, measuring the progress towards target 2.4 will require the assessment of productivity and sustainability of food systems, but also the understanding and assessment of resilient practices of rural enterprises.
