This year's ESPE winter seminar series is devoted to “Feeding the World”.
Providing a sufficient supply of nutritious food to the world’s population is a monumental goal that we have not yet fully achieved. Furthermore, the production of food through agriculture is a dominant driver behind many of the world’s most pressing environmental challenges. With global population expected to reach 9 billion by mid-century and with rising standards of living across many parts of the world, food production will likely need to increase substantially to ensure food security for the global population. However, the need for increased food production in coming decades poses a serious dilemma – namely, how can we increase production sustainably to ensure that we do not damage our environment in ways that threatens food production and the functioning of the Earth’s ecosystems?
This winter, the ESPE Winter Seminar Series explores these issues in a series of three talks, all of which are free and open to the public.
