The increasing overreliance of our food systems on a limited range of products presents pressing challenges in the context of a rapidly changing climate. Harvest failures and fisheries collapse are increasing risks for food security and livelihoods around the world. Many of the “adaptations” proposed include creating more environmental damage and consuming more natural resources. This event will explore the crucial role of food system diversification in building more sustainable and resilient food systems, including both aquatic and terrestrial food systems. Diversification is not easy, and speakers will unpack barriers and pathways forward, including the actors and actions needed to deliver food systems that work for both people and nature.
