Sustainable food production - solving the dilemma through innovation.
Rob Gladwin
Description: Dr Rob Gladwin, Head of Business Development and Sustainability, Crop Protection, BASF
With up to 9.7bn mouths to feed by 2050 against a backdrop of urbanisation, climate change and reduced availability of resources such as water, we face a massive sustainability challenge. This challenge can only be met through the use of the best available current and new technologies and within a political environment conducive to innovation. Crucial technological developments such as pesticides and biotechnology are coming under increased scrutiny by NGOs and regulators, which in turn makes investment decisions into new innovations increasingly challenging.
I will discuss some of the dilemmas and challenges we face, and move on to cover thoughts on how we might move towards a more sustainable food production system which meets the financial needs of the grower, societal needs for an adequate supply of safe affordable food, whilst minimising our environmental footprint.
Event starts 6.30 pm. As always, anyone from Junior School age onwards is very welcome. You don’t need to be an expert. Just bring an inquisitive mind!
Food will be served from 4pm until 8pm.
