In January, the UN announced that world food prices had reached record highs — just above the previous record seen during the 2007-08 world food crisis. What’s behind these price increases? Are we entering a new era of food scarcity? This online seminar asks how population growth, government policies and agricultural technology interact to drive changes in hunger and undernutrition around the world, with surprising implications for where — and when — food crises arise.

We are pleased to invite our volunteer leaders, alumni, and friends of the Friedman School to view this recording of an online seminar entitled “Another World Food Crisis? Behind the Headlines on Global Hunger.” The session was led by William A. Masters, Ph.D., Professor, Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy on February 24, 2011.
