Webinar: Climate change, peace and food security. A holistic approach for a sustainable future
Disruptive weather patterns and climate change have a direct bearing on global food security, so a better understanding of such complex systems is crucial to fighting hunger and poverty.
During the virtual event "Climate change, peace and food security. A holistic approach for a sustainable future", the 2021 Nobel Laureate in Physics, Giorgio Parisi, will be invited to join the FAO Nobel Laureates Alliance for Food Security and Peace and will deliver a lecture entitled: "Science: the headlight on our future".
Parisi was awarded the Nobel prize for "the discovery of the interplay of disorder and fluctuations in physical systems from atomic to planetary scales".
The event will be opened by the Director-General, with interventions from Luigi Di Maio, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Italy, and Muhammad Yunus, 2006 Nobel Peace Laureate.
The webinar will take place on Wednesday 19 January, 11:00 - 13:00 CET.
