The Cornell Institute for Climate Change and Agriculture was a proud sponsor of the 2nd International Conference on Global Food Security, which took place from October 11th-14th at Cornell University.
The conference addressed the food system activities of processing, distributing and consuming food, as well as food production from crop, livestock, tree, freshwater and marine sources; the availability, access, utilization and stability dimensions of food security; and the synergies and trade-offs between economic, environmental, health and social objectives and outcomes. The conference ranged across disciplines and spatiotemporal scales of analysis to span the drivers, activities and outcomes of food systems to encompass both contextualized and holistic treatments of the broad challenge of food security. The conference delivered state-of-the-art analysis, inspiring visions and innovative methods arising from research in a wide range of disciplines.
