The Fate Of Food

How do we go about feeding a planet that’s hotter, drier, and more crowded than ever? From a remote-controlled organic farm in Shanghai, a Norwegian fish farm, and famine-stricken parts of Ethiopia, innovators are seeking to reinvent the global food system to be more productive and nutritious. Does this mean the end of animal meat? Can a clean, climate-resilient food system be built to distribute calories in a way that is efficient and equitable?

A conversation with Civil Eats editor Twilight Greenaway and Fate of Food author Amanda Little on how innovation and agriculture, technology and traditional knowledge are coming together to sustain a planet of eight billion.
