Almost one in eight people around the world are chronically undernourished. Recurrent food price spikes – along with socio-political unrest, climate change, land degradation and scarcity of natural resources – have placed food security high on the development agenda.
Together, we’ll take an interdisciplinary approach to studying food security, using insights from agro-ecological sciences, geography, social and political sciences, and innovation studies. The course uses research-informed teaching to explore and analyse global food security issues, the factors that affect food security outcomes, the solutions to food security problems, and the planning and execution of food security interventions.
