Sustainable and resilient food systems

Food supplies are threatened by extreme weather, diminishing water supplies and geopolitical instability, such as the war in Ukraine. Our work aims to investigate the various vulnerabilities that is facing our food system and how to adapt solutions that are environmentally friendly, and people focused.

Our researchers answer the following question, using expertise and facilities within the University and beyond: How can we make our food system less fragile and more resilient?
