The Future of Food


Understanding the challenges associated with reliably providing food and nutrition in the context of a growing population and changing climate is integral when considering the global food system. The Future of Food Lecture Series, organized by the Harvard University Center for the Environment, highlights the interactions between agriculture and climate and their consequences for health and stability in an ongoing series of discussions with speakers from government, academia, and industry.
