One of the main challenges facing the human race is how to feed its people. Food production needs to rise by 50% by 2030, yet society expects that this additional food be delivered with reduced environmental impact.
Food security is also about addressing the associated socioeconomic factors to enable people to access sufficient, safe and nutritious food.
This scheme aims to train natural and social scientists to tackle these challenges, by providing interdisciplinary training and research with an international focus.
Modules on offer include: - Conservation Biology - Contaminated Land and Remediation - Crop Protection - Environmental Management - Food Security, Agriculture and Climate Change - Habitat Management - Perspectives on Environment and Development - Sustainable Soil Management - Sustainable Systems
