How can we ensure everyone in the world has access to enough food for an active and healthy life, on a sustainable basis?
With the global population estimated to reach nine billion people by 2050, food security is one of this century’s greatest challenges. The Cambridge Global Food Security Initiative recognises that expertise from many disciplines is required to understand such a complex issue, and to develop effective solutions. The Initiative is a virtual network of researchers across the University, from crop scientists and engineers to specialists in political economy, policy and public health. It promotes interaction and knowledge sharing, and supports collaborative research to address the issues surrounding food security at local, national and international scales.
