By 2050, 2 billion more people are expected to be vying for food and energy. Access to fresh water and arable land will be heavily constrained. And the food supply for the world's 9 billion people will be increasingly produced under flood conditions, drought or both, as climate change accelerates.

A journalist panel focused on several reporters discussing their work--putting the face on stories about food security, focusing on people who do or don't have access to food and the changing faces of agriculture--at a daylong symposium, "Food Security in a Vulnerable World," held September 12, 2013.

Journalists:

  • Jon Miller, Homelands Productions
  • Erik Stokstad, Science
  • Roger Thurow, Wall Street Journal
  • Lori Rotenberk, Grist, Boston Globe

Hosted by International Programs in Cornell's College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (IP-CALS), the symposium kicks off the fall lineup of events that continues the yearlong celebration of IP-CALS' 50 years of international engagement.
