Facing a triple crisis: Food, climate and conflict
Listen now
Food insecurity, climate change and conflict are placing considerable pressure on the global food system. Inequality, access to land, access to nutrient-rich foods, and the loss of local food cultures and diversity are realities further amplified in the new risk landscape. These challenges are also playing out differently depending on the region you inhabit. In other words, the global south and the global north are both feeling the pressure, however, in disparate ways. This episode's guests Cibele Queiroz and Albert Norström discuss the challenges our global food systems face and explore ways through which we can move towards more resilient, sustainable and just food systems. Albert Norström is a researcher at the Stockholm Resilience Centre and head of knowledge and evidence at the Global Resilience Partnership. Cibele Queiroz is a researcher at the Stockholm Resilience Centre and Global Resilience Partnership. Your host is Annette Hertwig.
