Food Security 2011: Transforming the Food Production System

Event Date: 
December 14, 2011 to December 15, 2011

How do practices, value chains and trade need to be transformed? Meeting global demand for food will require an unprecedented transformation of the agricultural system towards one that is more productive, more efficient, more resilient, and uses natural resources more sensitively.

  • How can political and economic barriers to change be overcome?

  • What transformative business models and partnerships between the public and private sectors work?

  • What needs to happen to ensure that the opportunities presented by investments in agriculture and R&D are maximized?

This conference will gather business leaders and representatives from the private sector, governments, multilateral agencies, and non-governmental organizations to examine changing agricultural investment patterns, highlighting international policy developments and business approaches to coping with environmental shocks and stresses presented by climate change and global population growth.
