Global food systems are changing in dynamic and remarkable ways. The nexus between food, water, energy, and changing climate is forcing agriculturists to re-imagine how they will provide sustenance to a hungry world. The challenges and opportunities that are emerging with the advent of expanding knowledge, technology and information systems are forcing us to re-think all aspects of agriculture. A.G. Kawamura will discuss the threats to food security that confront our attempts to manage life systems and resources in a sustainable manner. He will also explore expanding farmers’ capacity while enhancing the predictability of their agricultural activities on a planet with changing climate regimes. Kawamura is a third generation fruit and vegetable grower and shipper and owner of Orange County Produce. He is the former Secretary of the California Department of Food and Agriculture.
