Food System Resilience: Why it’s more important than ever

Professor Chris Elliott discusses how the UK can ensure it is food secure in a rapidly changing world that is facing various shocks.

The ability or indeed inability to feed the world’s growing population has come into sharp focus over recent years. Discussions around food security, food insecurity and sustainability have intensified at national and international levels and have become topics discussed and debated at major economic and political fora.

More recently the term ‘food system resilience (FSR)’ has entered into these discussions. There are quite number of different (albeit closely related) definitions for this, but I tend to use that termed by a very good group of researchers led by Professor Johan Six based at ETH Zurich.1
