Food security is one of the most critical issues facing the world today. As the world’s growing population continues to put pressure on a system already under strain, and with food demand only expected to increase the consequences of food shortages, from price spikes to malnutrition, will be acute.

Furthermore the many problems affecting global food security including changing climate and weather patterns, competition for land, environmental regulations, pests and diseases, inadequate infrastructure and changing consumption patterns, only add to the challenges of providing adequate and stable supply.

This two day symposium will consist of a mix of plenary, panel and networking sessions with speakers from both UCL and other universities in the UK and overseas as well as featuring grassroots community organisations to high profile national and international speakers.

Times: Monday 9 November - 12.30-18.30 Tuesday 10 November - 09.30-15.00
