Climate resilient food production in 2050, what will it look like?

Sign up open now!

How we produce food has a big impact on our ability to move towards a more sustainable planet. In September, you will have the chance to think what future challenges have to be faced and what food production should look like. Register now for this workshop on future food production at SLU, Uppsala!

Prominent researchers in soil and water resources, land use systems, livestock production, power and poverty dimensions will present state-of-the-art synthesis of what we know today about future needs and uses of our food productions systems globally as well as in Sweden.

The aim of the workshop is to identify strategic challenges for achieving a resilient food production in a changing climate.
