The food system cannot sustain prolonged impacts from climate change and unchecked population growth. Professor Sayed Azam-Ali shares his insights about creating a sustainable future for food through the generation of a long-lasting, nutritional food source.
Professor Sayed Azam-Ali is the Chief Executive Officer of Crops For the Future (CFF), the world’s first and only center dedicated to research on underutilized crops for food and non-food uses. In 2017, he was elected as Chair of the Association of International Research and Development Centers for Agriculture (AIRCA), a nine-member alliance focussed on increasing global food security by supporting smallholder agriculture within healthy sustainable and climate-smart landscapes. Prof Azam-Ali also holds the Chair in Global Food Security at the University of Nottingham. More information on CFF activities here: http://www.cffresearch.org/
