International agreements, increasing urbanization and climate change are putting pressure on the global food system. The annual Chatham House food conference will address the specific challenges that need to be overcome to improve sustainability and food security, deliver carbon reductions in the food system, and the role of policy, industry and civil society in achieving these goals.

Discussion topics will include:

- Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the COP21 climate change commitments – In order to satisfy these agreements, how will food production and consumption approaches need to be reassessed by countries, companies and individuals? Key areas for improvement include tackling food waste, changing consumption and improving the ecological efficiency of food production.

- Demographic shifts and increasing urbanization – These are furthering the need for, and accelerating, changes to farming systems. Methods for adaption to a low carbon, urbanized world and the potential for entrepreneurial approaches and new technologies to generate solutions will be assessed.

- Sustainable development and resilience - To ensure food security and economic development, resilience must be improved. As climate risk grows, how can investment be mobilized to help prevent serious disruption and what risk management mechanisms, including insurance, are available?

The Chatham House Rule
To enable as open a debate as possible, this conference will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
