Introduction to the Symposium on American Food Resilience (Part 2)
- 172 Downloads
What are the main lines of vulnerability and how do they function?
What are leverage points for reducing the risks and improving the capacity to cope with breakdowns?
What is already being done by government, civil society, and the private sector?
What can scientists, teachers, and other professionals do through research, education, community action, or other means to make the food system more resilient?
Conflict between the prevailing “industrial” paradigm and sustainability
The scale of food system operations, and the contribution that more resilient regional food systems can make to the security of our food supply
