GLOBAL FOOD SECURITY: CREATING RESILIENCE IN THE FACE OF CATASTROPHIC CLIMATE CHANGE

Location

Denys Holland Lecture Theatre | Bentham House (link Map)
4–8 Endsleigh Gardens | London | WC1H 0EG | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential

Climate change has already affected global crop yields by altering the environmental conditions that are essential for agricultural production. Across the world, nutrition and livelihoods of the two billion farmers who rely on subsistence agriculture are expected to be the most negatively affected by this, despite having contributed the least to climate change. However, the links between food production, health and the environment remain largely unexplored. Multi-disciplinary collaboration is urgently required to enhance local resilience to climate change and environmental degradation, promote sustainable agriculture, and improve nutritional outcomes.

This symposium is an opportunity to bring together expertise in health, policy, agriculture, ecosystems and climate science to explore and debate these linkages.
