Food Security is one of the most acute challenges for ocean nations and coastal communities. Sustaining wild capture fisheries and managing aquaculture growth in a time of rapid and profound change in the oceans and the global food sector is crucial.
Join us as Quentin Grafton provides an overview of the current state of the food-water nexus, reviews possible future scenarios, and evaluates some of the myths, realities and possible solutions to promote both food and water security. Quentin Grafton is Professor of Economics, Chairholder UNESCO Chair in Water Economics and Transboundary Water Governance and Director of the Centre for Water Economics, Environment and Policy at the Crawford School of Public Policy at the Australian National University. He has published widely in both economics and science journals on food and water issues, including in Science and Nature.
