Canadian Agri-Food in a Hungry World: Improving Canada’s Position in a Shifting Geopolitical Landscape
The world is changing and agriculture and food are on the front lines. A multilateral system under stress, increasing demand, pressures on production and more are colliding to tighten supplies, increase food insecurity, and challenge trade. As a top food-exporting nation, how Canada chooses to respond will define our place in the world. Canada has the opportunity to set its agri-food sector on the path of global food security, but a more ambitious, more strategic approach is needed.
The Canadian Agri-Food Policy Institute (CAPI), Canadian Global Affairs Institute (CGAI) and the Canadian Agri-food Trade Alliance (CAFTA) are convening a one-day conference to bring together leaders from across agri-food, security, foreign affairs and trade. The intersection of farming and food production with trade, security and diplomacy can give Canada a new and exciting role in the world, if we are willing to take it on. This event will try and answer whether Canada is ready and able to seize the moment.
