Webinar: The Future of Food: Feeding the Planet During Climate Change
Tuesday, December 13
12:30–1:30 p.m. EST
By 2050, a projected 9.7 billion people will inhabit the planet. How will we produce enough nutritious food to support this burgeoning population and ensure access to food resources, particularly as climate change stresses the environment? This webinar will explore innovative methods and systems for producing food, as well as new types of products and underutilized sources. The panelists will talk about emerging technologies, including advances in genomics and aeroponics, to grow food. They also will discuss ways to sustain at-risk food resources made vulnerable from climate change, and the impacts for populations in developing countries.
