Concepts and critical perspectives for food environment research: A global framework with implications for action in low- and middle-income countries
In September 2018, the Food Environment Working Group published a perspectives paper in the journal Global Food Security. Building on 2017's technical brief, the paper synthesises food environment literature in order to frame the Group's critical perspectives, and introduces a new definition and conceptual framework that includes external and personal domains and dimensions within the wider food environment construct. The paper concludes by discussing implications for future research in LMICs.
