Food Governance Conference

 

Overview

Food is fundamental to human existence, and plays an important role in social, economic, and cultural life. Yet population growth, climate change, and marketization 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 explores 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.

While food-specific law and regulation are a key focus of Food Governance, the conference will 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 regimes. The conference will engage with issues around food system governance at local, national, regional, and global levels.
