Research Fellow – Financing the agricultural transition, Food systems

Lucile essentially works on topics related to agriculture, food and climate. She mainly analyses the financing of the French food system and its contribution to the ecological transition: what amounts of public and private financing are dedicated to the the food system? are they aligned with the challenges of the transition (mitigation, adaptation, biodiversity, etc.)? are they commensurate with needs? She also works on issues linked to the household food transition, and in particular the protein transition.


Lucile holds a masters degree of Economics from the Doctoral department of Sciences Po Paris.

    Reducing meat consumption: public policies a long way from sustainability objectives

    Livestock population in France has been falling for several decades (-20% for dairy cattle and -33% for sows since 2000), without necessarily reducing the quantities produced. But productivity gains will not be able to maintain production levels forever. For the decline in livestock farming to have an impact on the climate, it must be accompanied by a drop in meat consumption, but is this really happening?

    Livestock farming transition: managing past investments and rethinking future ones

    Accompanying the decline in livestock numbers. All transition scenarios rely on a decline in livestock numbers to meet climate targets. Yet in France, most livestock populations are already declining. The challenge is not only to continue this trend, but also to support it, to ensure a fair and acceptable transition for livestock farmers and other players in the livestock industry. This is particularly true for the dairy sector.

    Does more sustainable food increase consumer budgets?

    Eating less animal products and wasting less reduces the budget, but increasing consumption of organic products increases it. In total, does adopting a sustainable diet increase or decrease consumer spending?

    Assessing the sustainability of the French food system: methodological issues and results

    To learn more about the methodology used by I4CE to assess the contribution of financing flows to the emergence of a sustainable food system, this technical paper introduces it and identifies its limitations and key methodological challenges for the future.

    Food policies and climate: a literature review

    Food consumption is responsible for around 28% of total greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions (see I4CE study on the issue) Which dietary practices have the largest potential for reducing food-related GHG emissions? Is it possible to reduce food-related emissions while also targeting public health and environmental goals such as the preservation of soils or water quality? […]

    Estimating greenhouse gas emissions from food consumption: methods and results

    A large share of global greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions comes from food production and consumption. Measuring the total footprint of world diets remains however a challenge. The main reason is the lack of harmonization on consumption based emission accounting methods. While a few estimates are available, their results are often hardly comparable, may be rather […]
