Drop-in meeting - the Worlds Bread Basket is on fire

The terrifying and unacceptable war in Ukraine calls first for our sympathy and compassion with the Ukrainian people. That´s crystal clear. Ukraine is also known as the World´s Bread Basket, exporting 10% of all wheat in the world and on topof that Ukraine is the largest exporter of sunflower oil in the world. We have already seen the war having global impact on food supply and food prices with serious consequences for millions of people. We at Agro Food Park have arranged this drop-in meeting to focus on the world food challenges, that we face because of the war in Ukraine.

At the drop-in you get the following insights:

  • The global food production, food supply and food prices by Senior Advisor Henning Otte Hansen, Department of Food and Resource Economics, University of Copenhagen

  • The humanitarian consequences of the unstable food supply and the increased food prices for especially the poorest part of the World´s population by Director Anne Poulsen, World Food Programme (Nordic office) 

The drop-in meeting is August 23rd from 14.30-16.00 in Agro Food Park 13 (meeting room Plant). Participation is for free, but pls. send a mail to srma@agrofoodpark.dk, if you would like to participate.
