Are We on Track to Feed the World by 2050? Land, Biofuels and Food Systems

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

With the world’s population set to exceed 9 billion by 2050, our panel of expert speakers will discuss how we can ensure that there is enough food for everyone and the challenges we face as we juggle food, energy and climate policies. 

Will increasing agricultural production by 2050 put more food onto the plates of those who need it? What are the obstacles to achieving food security in a climate-constrained world? And what changes are needed in our current approach to overcome them?

Panelists:

  • Timothy A. Wise, Director, Research and Policy, Global Development and Environment Institute, Tufts University
  • Ivette Perfecto, Professor, School of Natural Resources and Environment, University of Michigan
  • Scholastica Haule, Women and Land Rights Advisor, ActionAid Tanzania and Douglas Hertzler, Senior Policy Analyst, ActionAid USA
  • Douglas Hetrzler, Senior Policy Analyst, ActionAid USA

Breafast will be provided.
