Food and Agriculture in Times of Crisis_ High level event of the Global Network Against Food Crisis 2-3 April 2019, Brussels

Post date Monday, 18 February, 2019 - 17:03

Over 100 million people are in food crisis and it will only get worse if current trends are not reversed. Scientific evidence and policy
analyses identify three main clusters of drivers of food crises:

  • Socio-economic factors: demographic change, urbanization, growing inequality, unequal access to resources, unhealthy eating habits.
  • Environmental factors: climate change, soil degradation, over-exploitation of natural resources, water scarcity.
  • Peace and security: armed conflict, good governance, rule of law.

On 2-3 April 2019, on the occasion of the Launch of the Global Report on Food Crises 2019, join the international community and civil society in their quest to find ways to work together better.

Because solutions exist.
