In November 2015, sixty-five international public and private sectors leaders participated in Food Chain Reaction, a simulation and role-playing exercise to improve our understanding of how governments, institutions, and private sector interests might interact to address a crisis in the global food system.
Over the course of two days, the players reacted to a scenario set five years in the future in a world where population growth, rapid urbanization, extreme weather and political crises combine to threaten global food security. By collaborating, negotiating, and confronting tradeoffs, they offered new insights into our food future.
Findings from game will be announced in January 2016.
Food Chain Reaction was produced by World Wildlife Fund and the Center for American Progress, with game design from CNA. Funding and technical support for Food Chain Reaction was provided by Cargill with major support from Mars, Inc.
