Food security links health, development, national security and the environment in unique and important ways. This Food Security Salon focused on presenting research solutions to global issues of food security, hunger, and environmental degradation from agricultural practices. Stanford faculty discussed their work on how global food supplies and human health are affected by climate change, agricultural intensification and world markets.

Stanford University faculty are working across disciplines to address the critical global issues of hunger, food security and environmental degradation from agricultural practices worldwide through an applied research portfolio, teaching program, and science and policy advising. Research is focused in the Program on Food Security and the Environment, which is a joint program between the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment and the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies.
