Agriculture and Food Security: Global Challenges and Local Solutions
“Agriculture and Food Security: Global Challenges and Local Solutions” is a webinar co-presented by Farm Foundation and the Canadian Agri-Food Policy Institute (CAPI). It will take place on July 12, 2022, at 10 a.m. Central/11 a.m. Eastern via Zoom.
The Russian invasion of Ukraine has created increased pressure on global food systems, limiting supply and driving up prices of many key foodstuffs. However, pressure on global food systems was already significant, driven by rising demand and production challenges around the world.
This global challenge requires local solutions, with food producers being called on to find sustainable ways to meet growing global demand. This webinar will explore current dynamics within the global food system and consider what policy solutions could be implemented in Canada, the United States and around the world.
This discussion will be moderated by Farm Foundation President and CEO, Shari Rogge-Fidler. Lee Ann Jackson, Agro-food Trade and Markets head of division, OECD, will provide an opening presentation, followed by a panel discussion featuring:
Former US United States Ambassador to the United Nations Agencies for Food and Agriculture,
Chief of the United States Mission to the UN Agencies in Rome from 2019 to 2021,
Managing member, Tom Farms, and Farm Foundation Round Table Fellow
President and CEO, Canadian Canola Growers Association,
Chair, International Agri-Food Network
President and CEO, AGT Foods
This webinar builds on collaboration between the Farm Foundation and CAPI, including the Trade and Climate Change conference in 2021, Trade and the Environment (2020), and Trade in an Increasingly Chaotic World (2019).
The webinar is free to attend but registration is required.
