Agriculture & Food Security


Increasing pressures from population growth, climate change, social and economic inequity and instability, the continuing need to avoid further loss in ecosystem biodiversity, as well as pressures on other critical resources (such as water and energy), means that there are major challenges in delivering food and nutrition security. While agriculture clearly has a central role to play, food and nutrition security also relies on physical, biological, socio-political and economic environments. A major IAP programme on ‘Food and Nutrition Security and Agriculture' is tackling these interconnections from the point of view of science and research. The project is funded predominantly by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

Below is a list of relevant meetings, projects, press releases, programs, articles, statements, reports, forums etc. related to agriculture and food security. This listing does not contain all IAP website content; items are selected for inclusion based on – how recently they have been posted and - their popularity among site visitors.
