EGU press conference:

PC1. Improving food security: new techniques

Monday, 26 April 16:00 CEST

"In 2019, nearly 750 million people were exposed to severe levels of food insecurity. Conservative estimates indicate that more than 3 billion people can’t afford healthy diets, and that the social costs of greenhouse gas emissions associated with current food-consumption patterns will top $1.7 trillion per year within the next decade.

This press conference will introduce journalists to some of the latest geoscience research being conducted to help improve global food security, including two types of forecasting that support early warnings in Africa. Additional research strives to improve agricultural management strategies with respect to greenhouse gas emissions and to balance food and water security in cities. Lastly, we will hear how one group of scientists is researching how pre-Viking and Viking societies adapted their agricultural practices to a changing climate to glean fresh insights into how we can improve our future food security."
