If the following questions interest you, this course is for you!
If there is plenty of food grown in the world already, why are many people still hungry? What is better for the environment – eating local food, organic food, or being vegetarian? An increase in food price is worse for the consumer but better for the farmer, so is low food price good in the long run? Does giving people more money improve food security? How do different farming systems (organic, conventional, GM, urban, etc.) compare in terms of food production, environmental footprint, and livelihoods?
