Arrell Director Discusses Global Hunger With CBC News Network

Dr. Evan Fraser

Dr. Evan Fraser, director of U of G’s Arrell Food Institute, spoke to Canada Tonight on CBC News Network to discuss what’s needed to reverse rising global hunger rates.

He said three things need to be addressed: global conflict that prevents food access; climate change; and wealth inequality.

Fraser holds the Canada Research Chair in Global Food Security and researches the links between food security, land use, and global environmental and socio-economic forces that shape our food-producing landscapes. He also examines food security crises of the past to better understand where and how we might be vulnerable to crises today.
