Global Experts Unpack Food Crisis

While signs of the world food crisis may not be visible in Ithaca, Cornell hosted a diverse range of thought on the subject during an open conference called “Visible Warnings: The World Food Crisis in Perspective” this weekend. The events brought together a myriad of professors from various colleges around the globe, each of whom specialized in a different field.
The third event, called “Food, Land and Ecology,” featured Farshad Araghi of Florida Atlantic University, Saturnino Borras, Jr. of St. Mary’s University, and Kristen Lyons of Griffith University in Australia.
Of the topics discussed, emphasis was placed on unpacking the the potential causes of the crisis.
