Sustainable Management of Food Security

Considering the large number of people suffering from hunger and expected population increase next in two decades, food production system should be re-evaluated in order to overcome food shortage. The world population is expected to increase by additional two billions by 2050, emphasising that the current food production should be increased accordingly. The aims of the present Workshop are to deliberate on behavioral, biophysical, economic, institutional, political, social and technological drivers of the current and the future global food security. The conference will address the food system activities of processing, distributing and consuming food, as well as food production from crop, livestock, tree, freshwater and marine sources; the availability, access, utilization and stability dimensions of food security; and the synergies and trade-offs between economic, environmental, health and social objectives and outcomes. The strong expected impact of climate change ill also be deliberated upon. The conference will thereby range across disciplines and spatiotemporal scales of analysis to span the drivers, activities and outcomes of food systems to encompass both contextualized and holistic treatments of the broad challenge of food security in Asian countries.
