Talk: Economic Growth, Structural Transformation and the Evolving Food Security Challenge

As part of the Environmental Change Institute's Big Ideas Seminar Series Dr Prabhu Pingali, of Cornell University, will speak about economic growth, structural transformation and the evolving food security challenge. 

As economies grow the food security challenge transitions from tackling hunger and micronutrient malnutrition to combating the problems associated with over-nutrition.  The food policy priorities also transition from a focus on the quantity of food – “the pile of grain” – to a focus on food quality and safety. Emerging food security challenges can only be addressed through a convergence of agriculture, nutrition and environmental policies.
