Government responsibilities for food are spread across many different departments. Researcher Dr Kelly Parsons at the Food Research Collaboration took a deep dive into public documents and interviews with key actors to unpick the situation. What at first sounded like a simple task resulted in the discovery of many complex relationships and responsbilities spanning a total of sixteen government departments.
Taking the vast body of information discovered and translating it into a 47 page report was a vast piece of work, which then required a simple infographic to demonstrate the findings. Working closely with Dr Parsons, we created a simple graphic which can be used in future workshops to illustrate the linkages that people discover.
