The dire projections in the IPCC's latest climate science report made major headlines — but what do they mean for key sectors like agriculture and food production? Ahead of the 2021 UN Food Systems Summit, we're bringing together policymakers, experts and journalists covering food, farming and climate to discuss the questions, science and story ideas that will engage your editors and your audience.

This webinar is the second in a four-part series providing journalists with background, tools and tips on covering this year’s major international climate moments. Join us on September 15 from 1:00-2:00 p.m. ET for a deep dive into the future of global food systems in a rapidly changing climate.

  • Martin Frick, Deputy to the UN Secretary-General's Special Envoy for the 2021 Food Systems Summit
  • Esther Honig, Freelance Reporter, 11th Hour Food and Farming Journalism Fellow, University of California, Berkeley
