Forgotten Crops Society Dialogue Series: The Global Food Crisis: How should we respond?

Thu 23 June 2022


The Covid pandemic, the war in Ukraine and the climate crisis have exposed the vulnerability of the global food system. We cannot continue to rely on the commodity crops and complex supply chains that currently distribute food to consumers around the world. Business-as-usual is no longer an option.

So what can we do?

Professor Sayed Azam-Ali, OBE will argue that we must diversify our agricultural species, innovate our production systems and attract a new generation of farmers and agripreneurs if we are to feed 10 billion people on a hotter planet. In short, we must transform food systems for good. He will give examples of how we can move towards a new more diverse, resilient and inclusive agrifood system that is fit for the future of humanity and the planet.
