CANCELED – CFI Seminar: “Creating a Sustainable Food Future”
Due to Princeton University’s recently announced protocol regarding COVID-19, this event has been CANCELED. PEI will be canceling or postponing public events scheduled for March 23-April 5 in accordance with campus-wide procedure — please check our events calendar for updates.
Timothy Searchinger, a research scholar in the Woodrow Wilson School and the Center for Policy Research on Energy and the Environment and a lecturer in PEI, will present “Creating a Sustainable Food Future,” at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 11, in the Louis A. Simpson International Building, Room A71.
Society will likely need to produce 50% more food each year by 2050, while also reducing agricultural greenhouse gas emissions by two thirds and preserving forests and native lands. Searchinger will examine this challenge and the five-course menu of solutions identified in the report “Creating a Sustainable Food Future” issued last year for the World Resources Institute, the World Bank and the United Nations of which Searchinger was lead author. He also will discuss an analysis to implement these ideas as part of the Danish agriculture industry’s goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2050.
This event is part of the Spring 2020 CFI Seminar Series, which is free and open to the public. Additional speakers and dates in this series are:
