Summary

This course aims to provide a detailed critical awareness of the risks, challenges and opportunities of providing a sustainable supply of sufficient food to the world’s population, as we move into the future. It looks at the key technological initiatives as well as the overarching policies and strategies that are currently being developed in response to the problems, and show how these can be translated into scientific, technological and managerial solutions, whilst also being aware of their limitations. This course provides a balanced combination of state-of-the-art science and technology together with economics, policy and advocacy, and food supply management. These integrated elements will provide the basis for training those who will work towards sustainable supply chain solutions as we move into the future. There is an urgent need to provide a new breed of professionals who will take up positions in businesses, government departments, research institutions and NGOs to take up the challenges that future food supply presents, and this course has been introduced to address this.

This course also has PgDip and PgCert options.
