Food security remains one of the main challenges within the UN 2030 agenda and global imbalances have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and the recent energy crisis. Ensuring the functionality equitable food systems which leave no one behind whilst abiding to the climate targets set by the EU “Fit for 55” package and fulfiling national commitments enshrined in the EU Climate Law and the Greek Climate Law poses a pivotal policy and societal challenge for Greece in the coming years. Using an interdisciplinary approach to measure ecosystem services is instrumental in the calibration of shared socioeconomic pathways (SSPs) as their role in shaping natural capital directly affects land productivity and food produce both in terms of quantity as well as quality.
