The Food Security Land Research Alliance (FSLRA) has announced that Cardiff University is to join the partnership. The FSLRA was launched in October 2011, using world class inter-disciplinary research to tackle the global challenges associated with developing sustainable food security.
The FSLRA partnership between the Universities of Bath, Bristol, Cardiff and Exeter and Rothamsted Research brings together expertise across a range of disciplines from biosciences and agricultural sciences to economics and social sciences, establishing the South West as a centre of global research excellence in food security research and land management.
"We are delighted to announce that Cardiff University has joined the Food Security and Land Research Alliance to tackle one of the biggest challenges facing humanity: how can we sustainably feed a growing population? Cardiff will bring a wealth of expertise in the areas of food policy and governance to the Alliance, which is characterised by cross institutional working and an inter-disciplinary approach," said Professor Hywel Thomas, Pro Vice-Chancellor Research, Cardiff University.
Professor Terry Marsden, Director of the Sustainable Places Research Institute at Cardiff added: "Tackling the global food security crisis is one of the most important challenges we now face, with a growing population and increasing pressure on natural resources, we need research to help develop a sustainable food system for the future. We are looking forward to strengthening our partnerships with Bath, Bristol, Exeter and Rothamsted through this strong and productive Alliance."
