Global food security...
The task of ensuring affordable access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food for all is one of the major challenges of the 21st century, made more urgent by the rapid rate of population growth and the effects of climate change.
For Cambridge, global food security is both a challenge and an opportunity to focus and integrate research expertise in the natural, clinical and social sciences coupled with the humanities to develop tractable solutions. These must be sustainable, socially equitable and ecologically successful – the so-called ‘doubly-green revolution’.Professor Chris Gilligan, Head of the School of Biological Sciences
