The First International Conference on Global Food Security aims to deliver state-of-the-art analysis, inspiring visions and innovative research methods arising from interdisciplinary research. Join this opportunity to ensure that the best science is garnered to support the emergence of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Achieving global food security whilst reconciling demands on the environment is the greatest challenge faced by mankind. By 2050 we will need to feed 9 billion people. The urgency of the issue has lead to huge scientific strides forwards; making it difficult to keep up with the rapidly expanding volume of scientific research.

This conference aims to better understand economic, social, biophysical, technological and institutional drivers of current and future global food security.

The conference will address food production and access, and the trade-offs between competing environmental, economic or social objectives and outcomes.

Submit abstracts by 10 May 2013.
