The global food crisis has drawn international attention to the food security challenges posed by the devastating effects of climate change. As the damage related to climate change becomes virtually irreversible and increasingly ubiquitous, the time is ripe for decisive collective action. We must ramp up our efforts in assessing the safety of new technologies, in controlling food production and processing, and in protecting consumers, agriculture, public health, and antimicrobial resistance. To accomplish this, we must leverage the full range of scientific advances, risk assessment options, and digitalization avenues.
We will use this forum as a platform to identify global trends, challenges, and difficulties in solving the global food crisis. Together, we will discuss how to rationally apply existing technologies to address the global food crisis and create socially, environmentally, and economically sustainable agri-food systems in the face of climate change.
