OVERVIEW

Food is a basic human need, yet its availability in adequate, safe, nutritious and regular amounts for humans is by no means assured. While land and water for food production are both declining at alarming rates due to natural and human causes, the demand for food is still growing as populations all over the world increase. The unending questions – where food comes from; how it is grown; how climate change impacts the supply of vegetables and fish and what we can do about it; nutrition in diet; future new types of food that will be produced in factories; how safe is organic food and GMOs, etc – present some of the most pressing food-related issues everyone, from leaders and policymakers to corporate chiefs and man-in-the-street, needs to beware.
 
This seminar will address all these issues by the two speakers and authors of a new seminal book, Food Matters: Food Security and the Future of Food (Write Editions, 2018), Professor Paul Teng and Ms Manda Foo.
