Minneapolis-Saint Paul 2015
2015 Forum Roundtables | June 16 - 17
Become the Solution: Food Security 2050 is a new initiative designed to engage the collective knowledge and experience of conference attendees in order to find strategic solutions to the complex issue of global food security. The overarching challenge facing humanity today is how to prepare ourselves to feed the 9 billion people who will inhabit the earth in 2050. Under the umbrella of food security, the IFAMA 2015 conference examined three major themes:
People: Flow of Talent in the Food and Agribusiness Sector
Climate: Climate-Smart Food and Agribusiness Systems
Big Data: Better Analytics and Deeper Insight Management
IFAMA Academic Symposium | June 14-15
The Symposium portion of the conference featured two-days of research based presentations from international scholars on topics addressing the global food system. The program occurred in parallel tracks which include scientific papers, case studies, discussion sessions and posters. The Symposium provides the intellectual foundation for discussions which follow in the Forum sessions.
