Event Details

Perspectives on Food Security (chaired and Introduced by Professor Guy Poppy)

Speakers: Professor Tim Benton (UK Champion for Global Food Security), Professor Gail Taylor and Professor Robert Nicholls

In this event, jointly hosted by the Energy and Sustainability Science USRGs, we will examine the topic of global food security. The session will be chaired by Professor Guy Poppy who leads Southampton’s BBSRC DTP on Food security and the IFLS’s food and environmental security theme.

Professor Tim Benton will talk to us about his work as the UK Champion for Global Food Security, covering food production and waste in the supply chain.

Gail Taylor, Professor of Plant Biology, will give an overview of her work on increasing the sustainability of biofuels by using alternative plants to the food crops that are traditionally used to produce bioethanol.

Robert Nicholls, who is Professor of Coastal Engineering, will talk about the ESPA Deltas project that he leads on, focusing on deltas which are food baskets of the world and yet highly vulnerable to environmental change.


Refreshments will be available at this event.
