The global food system accounts for approximately 10% of the global economy and supports the livelihoods of over 1 billion people. It also faces massive challenges in meeting the world’s needs in ways that are both equitable and sustainable while maintaining productivity under a changing climate. Those challenges have never been more stark.
In our premiere webinar on Tuesday, October 5, we’ll look at the ways that our planet’s food systems are intertwined and the new realities facing agriculture production in a world requiring new innovations and approaches to create greater resiliency while increasing sustainability. Our panel of distinguished guests include:
- Amaka Anku, Africa Practice Head, Eurasia Group
- Moffatt Ngugi, Supervisory Agriculture Development Officer, USAID
- Claudia Ringler, Deputy Division Director, International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI)
- Moderated by Kerri Wright Platais, Special Advisor to the Chancellor and Director, International Agriculture, Colorado State University Spur Campus
Audience members are invited to send questions in advance for potential inclusion in the conversation.
Everything on the Table: Re-imagining Global-to-Local Food Systems is presented by the Institute for Science & Policy at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, the Environmental Sustainability Initiative at the University of Denver’s Josef Korbel School of International Studies, and the Colorado State University System’s new Spur Campus, International Agriculture Program.
