Third Annual Food Security Symposium: Commercial Agriculture in the Tropical Environments
Start Time: 4:00 PM
College of ACES Library

Livestreamed to encourage international audience.

The tropics contain some of the most important biomes for managing a variety of environmental challenges from biodiversity to climate change. But at the same time, agricultural expansion in South America shows that the tropics can be highly productive in terms of grain production. Additionally, agricultural intensification holds promise to reduce poverty and malnutrition among the many rural poor residing in tropical zones. This symposium addresses the complex tradeoffs between environmental stewardship and agricultural intensification in the tropics.
