Navigating the Perfect Storm

9 February 2012

Joint partnership event with WWF-UK

Chaired by the Government Chief Scientist, Professor Sir John Beddington, this event explored the international challenge of food, water and energy security in the run up to the United Nations Rio +20 Conference on Sustainable Development. 

The interaction between food, water and energy security is one of the most pressing issues for the world, and is especially challenging for developing nations. It is a key theme for both the Society and the field of geography.
