A Sustainable Food Future 2018
November 26 @ 9:30 am - November 27 @ 1:30 pm
The annual conference of London-based policy think tank Chatham House will discuss practical solutions for creating a resilient food system and feeding everyone sustainably.
A growing world population, dwindling agricultural resources and rising concerns about climate change are adding pressure to an already strained global food system. With global hunger on the rise after declining for over a decade, it is clear that countries, companies and individuals must reassess approaches to food production and consumption.
In this context, the annual Chatham House Food conference will explore practical solutions to build a more resilient food system and feed the global population sustainably, focusing on the responsibility of key actors in achieving these goals. Discussions will explore questions including:
- What are the latest challenges for food security? What are the implications of trade policies?
- What are the most viable agricultural strategies for balancing multiple uses of land, water and energy for food production?
- Are there new opportunities for technical cooperation between governments and the private sector as well as emerging and developed markets, in an era of disruptive innovation?
- Is there a responsible approach for influencing consumer food choice and global dietary trends?
- How might governments and businesses reduce food waste along the supply chain to bring both environmental and cost benefits?
The Chatham House Rule
