Feeding 9 Billion, Together: Sustainable Food Production in a Changing Climate

A private, off-site dinner sponsored by Monsanto.

Over the next 50 years, societies around the world will have to generate more food than they did in the past 10,000 years combined in order to meet the needs of the growing global population. And this food will need to be produced in ever-evolving environments that are facing some serious challenges, from extreme weather to the availability and sustainability of natural resources. No single entity can solve these issues alone, and it is imperative for farmers, corporations, NGOs, and government agencies to work together to develop creative solutions. This dinner will feature a compelling panel discussion exploring ways to improve sustainable food production in the face of climate change, population growth, and resource constraints.
