Feeding 9 Billion



A changing climate, combined with shifting economic realities, threatens the sustainability of the global food system and exacerbates food insecurity for millions in the global south. In an interconnected world, how might these effects extend to Canada's food system? How might the changing economic landscape influence food prices and access to healthy food for Canadians? In this webinar, join Dr. Evan Fraser, Canada Research Chair in Global Food Security and Director of the Arrell Food Institute, as he explores the sustainability of Canada's food system and food security in light of current environmental and economic trends.
