Food Security and Climate Change

  • 27 Oct 2014
  • 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
  • CSUSB - Santo Manuel Student Union Events Cetner Room 106A
History shows that agricultural shortages from chance weather problems often result in drastic social and political consequences. How will agricultural security be affected by today’s global climate changes? How can we avert food shortages and famine when we haven’t yet reached the goal of eliminating malnutrition in Africa and South Asia set ten years ago. Is the best action to increase production or to improve distribution systems?  What does experience show are the best ways to improve food production and distribution.  What are the roles of agricultural reserves, genetically modified and artificial foods. How does the issue of population growth play into the equation?  What achievements have been made so far in adapting to and mitigating food crisis? The conclusion of experts is that the regions and people most vulnerable now will be the areas most impacted by climate change. How should the world’s nations respond to that conclusion to prevent catastrophe?
