One of the biggest challenges facing global society today is the widespread and growing presence of hunger and food insecurity. The EU-funded FOODSECURE project examines the complexities within this global food challenge, looking at different countries and regions, societal trends and changing attitudes towards food consumption and production, agricultural innovations (e.g. GM crops), trade, (EU) food aid, EU policies, food price volatility, global food value chains, etc. In doing so, FOODSECURE aims at improving the resilience of our world food system, by providing a means to mitigate risks and uncertainties caused by economic and climatic shocks, while providing for sustainable economic growth.
Over the course of the project, the FOODSECURE team has worked with experts on development aid and disaster relief, food industry, agriculture, climate change, trade, environmental policy, innovation, renewable energy and other fields, coming from business, civil society, research and public institutions. These experts provided the FOODSECURE team with their vision for food and nutrition security in Europe by 2050, and identified key action clusters to achieve this vision.
