Impact of Innovated Per Adult Human Unit Method (PAHUM) vs. Error Bound Per Capita (PC): Recalibration of EU and Developing Countries (India), Family/ Households’ Population, Food Security and Environmental Sustainability
The UNSDGs (United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, particularly SDG2) agenda and Communication of the Lisbon Strategy of the EU set out an integrated package of measures to deliver more sustainable consumption (including food), better environmental protection, and correct population, production/consumption evaluations (e.g., cereal) by using appropriate and more meaningful methods, UNITS that are required. Observations and findings indicate a lack of harmonization of definitions and regulations pertaining to how data are obtained, and the method/criteria/UNIT (i.e., PC, AE) presented further complicates matters. combining and comparing data from various countries and regions, including family/household evaluations Failure to recognize and address the issues inherent in error bound PC (19.4 percentage unit error), “one-size-fits-all accept or reject” approach in food (organic/conventional) & other goods consumption calculations & projections of the target populations (which are simple to use) may result in erroneous production & consumption projections, as well as CO2 emission projections. To meet the aforementioned challenges, a radical shift in global organic/conventional food system evaluation methods is required. PAHUM, or Age and Gender Corrected Per Capita, is the state of the art in innovative PAHUM. The purpose of the (PCagc) (Copyright1989-USA) is to assess the demographic structure, consumer, and present/future food (Cereal) consumption potential of the EU28 and developing countries. PAHUM focuses on research with a systems approach, contributing to the development of tomorrow’s food systems, including CO2 emissions-biodiversity relationships, as well as the unanticipated consequences of PC cereal (grain) consumption/production evaluations and comparisons of families, households from developed and developing countries. PAHUM analysis revealed that we are overestimating major food (cereal) consumption/production projections on a per capita basis. We must think about and ask questions about continuous use error bound PC – metric evaluation.
