Feeding the World by 2050
Given current trends in food production and consumption, we will be unable to adequately feed the world’s estimated 10 billion people without modifications to our current food system. Attendees will be provided with background on the food issues facing our growing and changing population, how the world’s most vulnerable populations will be affected, and potential solutions. Panelists will discuss the topic and its interconnections with policy, sustainability, food security, equity, and technology. We will reserve 30 minutes at the end for questions from the audience.
