Food Security Challenge

December 3, 2020
8:30 AM - 10:00 AM

Event Description

270 million people globally are suffering acute hunger this year, twice last year’s count. Food security is a major global challenge, a priority for all countries, whether developing or developed. It is expected that by 2050, the demand for food will be 60% greater than it is today; and farmers will need to feed a projected population of 9.1 billion. Meeting this demand, presents a major challenge for governments and puts enormous pressure on the agriculture sector.  

What are the most pressing issues to address to achieve food security for all?
What are the priorities for governments, private sector, and researchers? 
How can we build back better from the pandemic?
How can we prepare for the impact of climate change?
