'Enhancing Food System Resilience'

John is an Associate Professor and Senior Research Fellow at Somerville College. His interests are in the conceptual framing of food systems; the interactions among the many actors involved and their varied activities, and the outcomes of their activities for food security, livelihoods and environment; and food system resilience.

We know that current food system activities will continue to significantly impact natural resources, and that environmental and socioeconomic shocks and stresses are increasing. How then can the resilience of our food systems be enhanced in the face of these stresses and shocks to (i) ensure sufficient, nutritious food for a growing, increasingly wealthy population while (ii) mitigating poor health and environmental outcomes, and (iii) also enhancing vibrant enterprise and livelihoods?

Based on a brief introduction to food system challenges, the presentation will consider the nature of shocks and stresses, concluding with varied notions of how to enhance food system resilience.
