In 2022, the theme for World Food Day is Leave NO ONE behind – building a sustainable world where everyone has access to nutritious food, a nod to UN Sustainable Development Goal #2 Zero Hunger.
Listen to a new World Food Day podcast, featuring Dean Rickey Yada who discusses the importance of the UN Sustainable Development Goals globally and here at UBC. Dr. Yada was interviewed by RELX/Elsevier’s Global Head of Corporate Responsibility, Dr. Márcia Balisciano, to mark World Food Day 2022.
In the podcast, Dean Yada talks about hallmarks of sustainable agriculture – growing food to feed the nearby population, continuously, and without harm to the environment. Sustainable agriculture also includes ensuring food is safe, culturally relevant and affordable.
He also discusses the important role that ‘place’ has in food security research at UBC, and which countries are supporting food innovation.
