Creating Better Food Policy: The Need for Connection feat. Dr. Kelly Brownell
Food policy affects the lives of all the world’s inhabitants. The ability to feed the world’s population, the preservation of finite resources such as water and arable land, the protection of the environment, and whether the food supply can be safe from food-borne pathogens and threats from bioterrorism are but a few issues of concern. In many parts of the world, political and economic stability are deeply threatened by food and water shortages, and with the world population increasing so rapidly, there are questions about whether food systems can keep pace, and if so, at what cost. It is essential to connect people, institutions, and government entities now working in disconnected and sometimes conflicting ways in order to create better food policy at local, national, and global levels. A model for addressing this will be discussed.
