Climate Change and Food Security poster

Dr Jacob Bishop – 25 May 2016

Dr Jacob Bishop of the University of Reading University talked to us about “What is global food security?”:

  • future global food security which will require more than just increasing crop production
  • how global food might security be impacted by climate change
  • extreme weather events using past examples of food security failures as case studies
  • strategies being developed to reduce the impact of climate change on food
  • production and at other levels of food security
  • ideas of what can be done including increasing dietary diversity to reduce reliance on single crops.
