This workshop will focus on co-developing a transdisciplinary research agenda and key questions for analyzing the role of the oceans within a global food systems context, highlighting issues related to food security, equity, poverty alleviation, marine ecosystems, and environmental change.
This event will bring together diverse participants from across academia, business, policy, and government. A new research agenda for oceans and the future of food will be crafted over the two days as researchers and stakeholders explore cutting edge ideas, identify emerging trends and challenges, and share diverse perspectives through collaborative discussion. Outputs stimulated by the workshop may be published in diverse journals in the Springer Nature family or in other outlets as appropriate. We also hope to use results from our work to inform ongoing policy discussions including the High-Level Panel on Building a Sustainable Ocean Economy.
I am excited to wear both my Spring Nature/Palgrave Macmillan and my academic hat at this table.
