LU Land breakfast seminar #17: Food production and sustainability - synergies or conflicts in times of crisis?
The war in Ukraine has, in addition to the humanitarian disaster it means for the country's population, a number of consequences in other countries. In Sweden, agriculture is affected by strongly increased prices for, among other things, fertilizers, energy and grain as a result of reduced exports from Russia and Ukraine. The war clearly shows how sensitive our food system is, with its dependence on inputs. This raises the question of how we can achieve a more robust food production.
One possible strategy is to diversify food production in the landscape, which can also have positive effects on resource efficiency, ecosystem services and biodiversity, but with possible consequences for how much is produced. At today's webinar, we discuss how the war in Ukraine affects Swedish agriculture and food supply, possible ways forward and how increased preparedness could be achieved through diversified food production in the landscape.
