Inflation, Food Insecurity, and the Coming Global Food Order

The world is in the throes of a food emergency.

Overlapping crises, such as the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, wars in Ukraine and elsewhere, supply chain bottlenecks for both inputs like fertilizer and outputs like wheat, and natural disasters induced by climate change have caused what the United Nations has called “the greatest cost-of-living crisis in a generation.”

Diplosphere will discuss:

  • What does this mean for NZ?
  • How will NZ agriculture look in 2050?
  • How can we prepare?
  • Why are shelves empty for this first time in years in big developed economies?
  • What are the hard lessons of the pandemic on securing food supplies?
  • How will we feed 2 Bn+ more people by 2050 with our broken food system?

  • Her Excellency Dina el Sehy, Egyptian Ambassador to NZ
  • Terry Copeland, CEO, Federated Farmers
  • Gil Meron, CEO, Sprout Agritech (Agrifood tech accelerator & investor)
