The COVID-19 pandemic and war in Ukraine are exposing weaknesses in the global food system. Trade is disrupted, a breadbasket threatened, prices rising, even before we face the full impact of climate change. The world is dependent on just a handful of key crops (rice, wheat, corn and soy) and their production is concentrated in a few regions. 

What would happen if, in the future, multiple breadbasket regions were hit by war or impacted by the climate crisis?  How quickly would we hit by famine?

What can we do to help prevent a food catastrophe on a global scale?  

Join Geoff Tansey, author of the award-winning Future Control of Food, as he discusses how we prevent a food catastrophe on a global scale.
