The War of Aggression on Ukraine and its Implications for National and International Agricultural and Food Policy

10 November 2022, 19.00-20.30 | HU Berlin, Unter den Linden 6, Senatssaal

The war of aggression on Ukraine has contributed significantly to the current increase in international food and fertilizer prices. What does this price increase mean for national agricultural policy? Can we no longer afford climate and biodiversity protection? Or should we invest in more resilient agricultural and food systems right now? And which international measures are suitable for limiting the consequences of the price increase for food security?

With: Prof. Dr. Harald Grethe, Professor of International Agricultural Trade and Development at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.

Moderation: Dr. Theresa Frommen, Integrative Research Institute on Transformations of Human-Environment Systems, Geo.X Young Academy Fellow, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.
