Food, land and security

Redefining the 'new food equation', this programme is developing new thinking about place-based food interactions that take whole system interactions into account, starting with biodiversity and moving through the arena of production and consumption.

Here, we do not separate production and consumption, and we even go further back by seeing nature and biodiversity as a defining element of these interactions, and form a basis for the food (in)security agenda as we see it. Questions here include:

  • What are the pressures and challenges that face food interactions in different places and times?
  • How are places reconstituting food interactions?
  • How do we assess adaptive process in sustainable place-making?
