Satisfying our needs for food in the coming decades will become increasingly challenging. On Wednesday, the 18th of April there will be a seminar in Stockholm about society´s incentives, needs and preparedness for securing food, water and energy to an increasing population.
In 2010, despite the fact that sufficient food was produced per capita to feed the entire human population, 925 million people remained food insecure. Human behaviour, climate change, politics, biodiversity impoverishment, fertilizer use, farming conditions, demographic changes and many other factors all have an impact on a sustainable regional and global development.
The objectives of the seminar and discussion forum are to inform participants about the global challenges our society will meet in the coming decades to secure food for 9 billion people.
The General Director of The Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB), Helena Lindberg is one of the persons on the panel.
The seminar is organised by the Swedish Secretariat for Environmental Earth System Sciences (SSEESS) and the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB).
