On February 11, 2016 a panel of experts announced the findings of Food Chain Reaction: A Global Food Security Game at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
Adding climate change to an already volatile mix of disruptions to global food security means more profound and urgent consequences for the global food system. Policies and actions affecting trade, climate and national security can exacerbate food system pressures and volatility worldwide. Panelists examined these issues and proposed policy recommendations to promote resilience and global food security.
The event featured an introduction by Michael Werz of the Center for American Progress (CAP), keynote speaker Senator Tom Daschle, CAP Chairman and Founder and CEO of The Daschle Group, moderator Alan Bjerga of Bloomberg News and panelists Tim Bodin of Cargill, David McLaughlin of World Wildlife Fund, Matthias Berninger of Mars Incorporated, Geraldo Martha of EMBRAPA Labex-USA and Nutan Kaushik of The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI).
