Anticipating and Mitigating Major Disruptive Risks to Global Food Trade

21 September 2015 - 9:00am to 5:30pm

British Academy, 10-11 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AH



At this one-day event, key stakeholders will be invited to discuss existing and future vulnerabilities and trends in global food trade, and to consider ways in which disruptive shocks may be anticipated and accounted for. Experts will provide insight into the challenges they face in exporting, transporting or importing commodities, and will explore risk management mechanisms that may be employed to ensure safe passage and security of supply of grains and fertilizers. 

The meeting forms part of a Chatham House research project that seeks to map key choke points in global food trade and identify those supply chains and trade routes that are most vulnerable to a range of infrastructural, security-related and climate-related risks.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
