Due to the effects of climate change, Covid-19, and local and global conflicts, food insecurity has been steadily increasing since the last decade. The UN now predicts that the same proportion of people will experience hunger in 2030 as in 2015, when Sustainable Development Goal 2 was launched. Lasting progress against food insecurity and malnutrition will involve innovations across food systems, including through advanced biotechnology. 

How can biotechnology offer solutions to the world’s food insecurity and malnutrition crises? How can biotechnology combat the pressures of conflicts, climate change, and a global pandemic? How can biotechnology be implemented to ensure sustainable production systems? 

Please join the CSIS Global Food Security Program on September 21 at 9:15 a.m. ET as we welcome Prime Minister of Denmark Mette Frederiksen and panelists from the public and private sectors to discuss the role of biotechnological solutions in the future of food.

Please join us for complimentary refreshments at 8:45 a.m. Those attending in-person should expect to be seated at 9:05 a.m. ET. in preparation for a 9:15 a.m. event start.

This event is made possible by the generous support of the Royal Danish Embassy.
