The Second International Conference on Global Food Security aims to deliver state-of-the-art analysis, inspiring visions and innovative research methods arising from research in any of a wide range of disciplines. Join us in this exciting opportunity to ensure that the best science is garnered to support the emergence of the Sustainable Development Goals.
Achieving global food security whilst reconciling demands on the environment is the greatest challenge faced by mankind. By 2050 we will need to feed at least 9 billion people. The urgency of the issue has led to huge scientific strides forwards, making it difficult to keep up with the rapidly expanding volume of scientific research.
We aim to better understand economic, social, biophysical, technological and institutional drivers of current and future global food security. The conference will address food production, processing and distributionand consumption; the availability, access, utilization and stability dimensions of food security, and the synergies and trade-offs between environmental, economic or social objectives and outcomes. The conference will span crop, livestock, tree, freshwater and marine food systems to encompass both contextualized and holistic treatments of the broad challenge of food security.
