2008 FEASTA SEMINAR SERIES
Converging Crises, Policy Responses
Thursday 19th June
Global food price inflation has been driven by declining yields, commodity markets, the rush to biofuels, increased production costs and greater consumption of meat. Many producing nations are restraining exports, reducing the availability of food on the global market. Achieving a secure food supply globally and nationally is a major task which demands a transformation of our food supply systems.
Part of a series of five seminars presented by prominent Feasta members in Dublin, in June and July 2008. You can read about the seminars in more detail here feasta.org/events/general/2008_seminars.htm
