Food Insecurity – What is Food Insecurity (Mini-lecture)

Food security is one of the most pressing challenges of our time with over one in ten people in Canada suffering from some form of food insecurity. My research findings suggest that a significant number of Canadian households are food insecure, and given the current configuration of farming practices, contradictory federal policies, climate change impacts, unresolved Indigenous issues, and water management challenges, Canada is at significant risk of higher rates of food insecurity in the future in light of climate change. My research findings suggest that the current renaissance in agricultural adaptation practices provides a viable solution to food insecurity and I hope, to eradicating food insecurity in the future. Please listen to this mini-lecture which provides a brief summary of the meaning of food insecurity.
