Project: “Making healthy and sustainable diets affordable for all”

William Masters works on the economics of global agriculture and food policy. He is a Fellow of the Agricultural and Applied Economics Association, and has a forthcoming textbook on Food Economics: From Agriculture to Health. He visited Bellagio in May 2023 to research how new data on access to healthy and sustainable diets can best be used to improve farming and food systems, building on the adoption of diet cost and affordability metrics as a new indicator of global food security by U.N. agencies, the World Bank, and national governments. He is a Professor in the Friedman School of Nutrition and the Department of Economics at Tufts University.
