About this event

EVENT CANCELLED - How the world can provide enough food to feed the global population has been discussed since Malthus.  However, this is getting more acute as demand is outstripping our ability to supply, and supply growth is limited by a range of constraints including increasing competition for land, increasing requirements to be sustainable and climate change impacting on agriculture.  Engineering has a core role to play in all parts of the food chain – from agriculture to recycling waste – but it is often overlooked in discussion of the solutions to face this major challenge.  I will outline why food security is an issue for everyone, the issues ahead and where engineering can especially play a role in helping us address this societal problem.
