Rethinking Food Security: Agriculture, People, and Politics

Examine pressing questions around global food security in four contrasting countries. Consider how to meet food availability demands when approximately 870 million people per year—more than 12 percent of the global population—suffer from chronic undernourishment. By 2050, it is estimated that the world needs to double its net food availability to feed a projected population of nine billion people. During this comparative program you will analyze local, national, and global food systems—and the very direct impact of food on our daily lives—to develop a deeper understanding of one of the most significant challenges of our time. By examining the implications of technological advances, changing geo-political landscapes, and climate change on food security equations, you will identify strategies to ensure healthy and prosperous livelihoods in a rapidly changing world.
