Since the food price spike of 2008 there has been increased interest in the challenges of feeding more than 9 billion people by 2050. The next 35 years represents a critical transition period in terms of food, energy, the environment and water. While markets provide some of the solutions, policies and governance arrangements are needed to ensure that markets operate efficiently, and effective governance arrangements are required to respond to the multi-dimensional nature of food security and to ensure that domestic and international institutions coordinate across policy domains.

At this special event, experts from Australia, Bangladsh, China, Denmark, the Netherlands, New Zealand, UK, and US will present their perspectives.

Date: Wednesday 22 April 2015
Time: 2.30pm–7.00pm
Venue: Finkel Theatre, John Curtin School of Medical Research, Building 131, Garran Road, ANU
