This paper proposes a framework for dealing with the complexity of food systems for guiding implementation, monitoring and evaluation of Sustainable Development Goal number 2 ‘End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture’. The framework combines a food systems approach with systems analysis and modelling techniques and helps identifying areas in need of further clarification for an effective post-2015 development agenda. Furthermore, the paper explains how the proposed framework can be used in developing theory of transformations and in formulating indicators that control for dynamic complexity. The paper also emphasizes the importance of building comprehensive monitoring systems for this purpose.
