Full Planet, Empty Plates

Monday, May 4, 2015 06:00 PM to 07:30 PM

Full Planet, Empty Plates

Description

"In this era of tightening world food supplies, the ability to grow food is fast becoming a new form of geopolitical leverage. Food is the new oil," says Lester R. Brown.

What will the geopolitics of food look like in a new era dominated by scarcity and food nationalism? How are grain-importing countries buffering themselves against poor harvests? What will be the effect on Africa and other parts of the developing world?

Lester R. Brown is president and founder of Earth Policy Institute. He is the author of Full Planet, Empty Plates and is recognized as one of the most influential figures in the modern environmental movement.
