Sustainable and Equitable Food Systems
Seventy percent of the world’s food is produced by family farmers, but current food policies, worldwide, do not reflect this reality or support these producers’ needs. This conversation with food policy experts Nora McKeon, Timothy A. Wise, and Emily Broad Leib will explore the limitations of the dominant food policy paradigm, particularly with regards to resilience, biodiversity, and human health. Drawing on their research, the speakers will also present alternative models that effectively engage family farmers and their communities as key participants in food policy decision making.
