Access to adequate nutrition is a basic human right.
However, it is not enjoyed equally by all. Food can become a political tool, and lack of it can destabilize entire countries or regions. Explosive population growth, the increasing cost of fuel and global warming are meeting to form a recipe for potential disaster of epic proportions.
To counter this we need to adopt improved technology, coupled with wise and forward-looking policies both locally and internationally.
The session look at the challenges ahead as well as changes we can adopt both locally and globally to make better use of the food we have and to produce more of it sustainably.
