Critical Questions to Ask and Answer About the Future of Global Agriculture in an Era of Multiple Crises

As nations face the challenges of climate change, biodiversity loss, food security, and economic resilience, it has become imperative to address the pressing issues that will shape the future of agriculture.

In a world grappling with a multitude of crises, the future of global agriculture has emerged as a focal point for critical questions and decisive action. As nations face the challenges of climate change, biodiversity loss, food security, and economic resilience, it has become imperative to address the pressing issues that will shape the future of agriculture.

Join us for an engaging and thought-provoking event that seeks to identify these critical questions, providing valuable insights to inform the construction of the next US farm bill. The 2010 paper, The Top 100 Questions of Importance to the Future of Global Agriculture, helped frame discussions and we will be looking to elevate it in today's context. Throughout the event, you will hear from thought leaders, policy influencers, and experts from diverse backgrounds, including Andreas Michaelis, German Ambassador to the US, Alexander Müller, TMG Think Tank for Sustainability; Helena Bottemiller Evich, Food Fix;  Ahmed Amdihum, Intergovernmental Authority on Development; Ricardo Salvador, Union of Concerned Scientists; and Peter Schlosser and Kathleen Merrigan , Arizona State University. 

Lunch will be served. This event will be held even in the event of a government shutdown.
