Let’s Talk: Ensuring global food security – Innovative sustainable solutions as a lever

Join Food Nation’s Global Food Talk on October 27: ‘Ensuring Global food security – Innovative sustainable solutions as a lever’. At the talk, you will meet leading high-level profiles from the Danish and international agricultural and food scene.

People around the globe share a common need for a safe, nutritious, and reliable supply of food. According to the UN, the number of severely food insecure people has doubled in just two years – from 135 million pre-pandemic to 276 million today.

Conflict, instability and increasing climate variability and extremes are affecting agricultural productivity, food production and natural resources, with huge impacts on food systems. All of this has led to major shifts in the way in which food is handled, produced, distributed and consumed worldwide – and to new food security, nutrition and health challenges. Therefore, we must ensure efficient and sustainable food production where everyone, everywhere has regular access to enough nutritious and safe food.

The main question for this talk is: How do we ensure enough safe, nutritious and sustainable food for everyone?
