Food security and planetary boundaries

Contributor: Will Bugler

Dr John Ingram of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) investigates the interactions between food security and the environmental boundaries that we must operate within to live sustainably. The ‘planetary boundaries’ concept is at the heart of a resilience approach to sustainability and defines the safe operating space for humanity.

The seminar at the Stockholm Resilience Centre highlights how the management of the food system contributes to crossing planetary boundaries and presents some of the consequences of crossing such boundaries for food security.
