Food governance: the role of law, regulation and policy in meeting 21st Century challenges to the food supply

 

Overview

Food is fundamental to human existence, and plays an important role in social, economic, and cultural life. Yet population growth, climate change, and marketisation challenge the ability of the global food system to deliver safe, adequate, nutritious, and sustainable food to the world's population.

Co-hosted by Sydney Law School and the Charles Perkins Centre, Food governance will explore the role of law, regulation, and policy in promoting food security and safety, as well as in improving nutrition and preventing obesity and non-communicable diseases.

The conference will also consider how other legislative and policy regimes impede or facilitate access to a nutritious, equitable, and sustainable food supply, including economic, trade, and intellectual property law and policy. The conference will engage with issues around food system governance at local, national, regional, and global levels.
