Global Food Security and How We Feed Each Other

September 22 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Despite the fact that we harvest more crop calories worldwide than ever before, researchers project that we are likely to fall short of the UN’s food security goals by 2030. Together, research scientist Deepak Ray and geographer Valentine Cadieux will unpack data showing how and why the use of harvested crops has changed over time, including how climate change is already impacting production of the world’s major crops. They will also look at community-driven food security efforts, including how small urban farms are changing how we understand the future of agricultural resilience. As they address the big questions facing agriculture and the food system, our panelists will discuss what it could mean if we reorient our sustainability goal from “how do we feed the world?” to “how can people feed each other?”
