This paper describes upcoming mapping on the effects of public policy interventions for achieving environmentally sustainable food consumption.
The evidence base for the protocol will be described narratively, using tables and graphs, and presented within a systematic map database, i.e., a searchable spreadsheet containing codes and meta-data. The authors will produce heat maps to visualize knowledge clusters and knowledge gaps by cross-tabulating two variables (e.g., interventions and outcomes). The interactive visualizations of the mapping outputs will be made freely available on a project website.
The knowledge clusters identified by the systematic map will then be used to carry out a smaller number of in-depth policy reviews if deemed possible. The policy intervention selection will be made in dialogue with stakeholders and the reference group and focus on policy interventions where there is sufficient evidence to systematically assess the effectiveness and are deemed to be suitable for the Swedish policy context, e.g., policies implemented in other EU countries.
