Achieving global food security, whilst reconciling demands on the environment, is one of the greatest challenge faced by mankind. By 2050, at least nine billion people will need food, and increasing incomes and urbanization will inevitably lead to dietary change. The food security challenge is encompassing the triple burden of malnutrition – undernutrition, obesity and micronutrient deficiencies. The urgency of the issues has led to huge scientific strides forwards, making it difficult to keep up with the rapidly expanding volume of scientific research.
The 3rd International Conference on Global Food Security will bring together leaders from industry and academia to exchange and share their experiences, present research results, explore collaborations, and to spark new ideas, with the aim of developing new projects and exploiting new technology for food security.
GAIN is one of the sponsors of the conference.
