Research Strategy for food security launched
The UK’s major public funders of national and international food-related research have published their co-ordinated plan for research to help the world avoid a potential food security crisis.
Providing the world’s growing population with a sustainable and secure supply of safe, nutritious and affordable high quality food from less land and with lower inputs presents a considerable challenge. In order to meet this effectively, Research Councils, Government Departments and other public bodies are co-ordinating their research activities related to food and agriculture through the Global Food Security programme.
