Amanda will share insights from her latest book, The Fate of Food: What We’ll Eat in a Bigger, Hotter, Smarter World, a five-year adventure into lands, minds and machines shaping the future of sustainable food.
Climate models show that global crop production will decline every decade for the rest of this century due to drought, heat, and flooding. Water supplies are in jeopardy. Meanwhile, the world’s population is expected to grow another 30 percent by mid-century.
Little will explore both traditional and high-tech approaches to food production and chart the growth of a movement that could redefine sustainable food on a grand scale.
