Food security is a fundamental human right and a cornerstone of global well-being. It encompasses not only the availability of sufficient food but also its accessibility, affordability, and nutritional value.

Despite significant advancements in agriculture and food production, the world still faces significant challenges in ensuring that everyone has access to safe, nutritious, and affordable food. Climate change represents one of the major threats to food security at the global scale. Changing weather patterns, extreme events, and rising temperatures pose significant threats to agricultural productivity and food supply. In turn, food shortages can lead to migration, conflicts over resources, and geopolitical tensions, affecting global stability. Food security has thus become a primary source of concern at the global and national level, and consequently a strategic priority at COP28. 

What is the role of innovation in fostering resilient food systems? How can long-term capital be mobilized at scale to improve food security at the domestic and global level? What are the best practices and the state-of-the art technologies in sustainable food systems and how can their impact be assessed and measured? This workshop will address these questions, delving into the role of finance and investment in addressing one of today’s major challenges in sustainable development, leveraging on TIL’s actionable research outputs in the field of food security. The workshop will aim to identify practical, business-oriented solutions and solid investment opportunities, engaging the broader ecosystem of experts, investors, companies, and policy makers.
