New Zealand's Response to Food Security in a Changing Global Environment

10 July 2009 - 12:00am to 11:00pm

Chatham House, London


Hon David Carter, Minister for Agriculture, Forestry and Biodiversity, New Zealand



The 2008 food price crisis highlighted the difficulties of keeping food moving to where it was needed as scarcity concerns mount. With the world facing the prospect of significant increases in demand for food even as natural resources become more scarce and climate change disrupts production, food security is not something that can be taken for granted.

This is the context for a seminar with Hon David Carter, New Zealand's Minister for Agriculture, Forestry and Biosecurity.
