Climate change impacts agriculture and food production environmentally, economically and socially. At the same time, the food production system is a source of greenhouse gas emissions, contributing to climate change.
Globally, population growth will lead to an increased demand for food, often under sub-optimal circumstances, such as water shortages. Climate change is also likely to affect yields, quality and availability of food in Estonia.
Reducing food waste plays an important role in providing food security to all and mitigating the environmental pressure of food systems.
The aim of the Sustainable Development Forum 2016 is to enhance the understanding of interactions between food production, consumption and climate change as well as of the ways to minimise the adverse effects.
