Forgotten Crops Society Dialogues: Global Food Crisis: How to Respond?

Forgotten Crops Society
Event date
Event time
6-7pm BST

Organiser's description

Our global food system faces unprecedented challenges; Professor Sayed Azam-Ali OBE will discuss ideas and examples of how we can transform it for good.  

The Covid pandemic, the war in Ukraine and the climate crisis have exposed the vulnerability of the global food system.
