International Conference: AGRIMONDE-TERRA
Land Use and Global Food Security in 2050
A Foresight study
Paris June 24th, 2016 from 10am to 17pm
84 rue de Grenelle 75007 Paris
What could be land-use changes in the world between now and 2050? How will they impact on both global and regional food security in the context of climate change?
The Agrimonde-Terraforesight study explores a variety of land-use scenarios based on qualitative and quantitative analysis. Scenarios are built and analysed with an international expert’s panel and using the INRA-CIRAD GlobAgri quantitative platform. They combine the possible evolutions of a large diversity of drivers (climate change, food diets, urban-rural relationships, farming structures, crop and animal production systems, public policies…).
The conference will present and discuss the issues of each scenario for food security, providing ‘food for thought’ for research institutions, policymakers and all actors involved in questions of land use and food security at global or regional scale.
