Zero Hunger in a Changing Climate

By 2030, we’ll need to feed an additional billion people from the existing resources we have available on the planet. This food needs to be produced sustainably, equitably and efficiently, without causing more environmental harm for us and future generations. The question of how to do it, clearly becomes the main issue. 75 per cent of all food today comes from smallholder farmers, many of whom are also part of the global poor. This clearly implicates that agriculture has to be a central issue, if we are to tackle world poverty and food availability.

How can the world increase the availability of food without over-utilizing natural resources or increasing climate change? How can we support small holder farmers to adapt to climate change? How will climate change affect food production and what can donors like Sida do to support smallholder farmers and address their demand for technology and investment needed to adapt? Zero hunger in a changing climate is the highly topical issue for this year’s first Development Talks, organised by Sida together with Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI), and the Swedish International Agricultural Network Initiative (SIANI).

Welcome to a seminar with many distinguished guests, including David Nabarro, UN Secretary General’s Special Representative for Food Security.

Moderated by Johan L Kuylenstierna, Executive Director, Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI)
