Food systems and security research forum
Establishing a safe, sustainable and equitable food supply for a growing population is a global challenge. The IPCC’s recently published report ‘Climate Change 2014: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability’ highlights disturbing implications for food security, affecting food production, access, utilization, and price stability.
How can our research community respond to this challenge?
Join the Cabot Institute food security research forum to discuss how we can address questions of food systems and security. Come and meet researchers at all career stages and from across the Cabot faculties, as well as members of Bristol Green Capital Partnership’s food action group, to understand more about each other’s work and how we can connect more effectively.
At 6 pm, come and hear Rothamsted Research's new Director, Professor Achim Dobermann, talk about “ Agriculture in the new sustainable development agenda”
This event is open to all University of Bristol staff and postgraduates, and to invited guests.
You must register for this event as spaces are limited.
