Abstract

An increasing world population combined with climate change and pressure on nature resources provides a considerable threat to global food security. Rapid urbanisation is a phenomenon that is occurring worldwide in which the urban population has been forecasted to double between 2000 and 2030. There is an urgent need to identify and develop alternative and inexpensive methods for sustainable food production and supply, while mitigating and reducing as much as possible the impact on natural ecosystems. Sustainable agriculture can provide solutions to improve crop yields and quality with the most efficient use of non-renewable resources.

These two sessions will address some of the key themes in food security, focusing on current collaborative international research projects being undertaken by NTU researchers that are underpinning efforts to ensure the sustainability of the global food supply chain while mitigating or minimising the impact on natural environments. Topics to be addressed will include vertical farming research, soils and sustainability and new frontiers in food manufacturing.
