The Second International Conference on Global Food Security
From Sunday 11 October 2015
To Wednesday 14 October 2015
Location: New York


Achieving global food security whilst reconciling demands on the environment is the greatest challenge faced by mankind. By 2050 we will need to feed at least 9 billion people. The urgency of the issue has led to huge scientific strides forwards, making it difficult to keep up with the rapidly expanding volume of scientific research.

The conference organised by Cornell University will address food production, processing and distribution, the availability, access, utilization and stability dimensions of food security, and the trade-offs between competing environmental, economic or social objectives and outcomes.

Topics list for parallel sessions:

  • Global and local analyses of food security and its drivers
  • Enabling policies for local and global food security
  • Sustainable intensification of food production systems
  • Urbanization, food value chains and food security
  • Managing food-feed-biofuels competition
  • Technological breakthroughs to help feed 9 billion
  • Reducing loss and waste
  • Reducing the risks to agriculture from climate change
  • and others.
