This event is focused on climate change and food security as it affects the world’s poorest people, as they are most at risk of increased food insecurity from the interplay of the effects of climate change on poverty and inequality of resources. We particularly welcome delegates working on projects, research or enterprises that address climate change and food security in developing country contexts, or whose work has implications for, or can learn from, work being done in the ‘global South’.

This talk is part of the Global Food Futures series.
