CGIAR researchers join the Chef's Manifesto Resilience Sessions
Date: Wednesday, 21 October 2020
Time: 13:00 (BST) / 20:00 (UTC+8)
Resilience is a building block of sustainable development that focuses on adapting quickly to and growing stronger in the face of change – a changing climate, a changing ecosystem, market, or socio-political situation. Where bouncing back from adversity has become our reality, resilience is our future. Increasing resilience is an essential element of food systems transformation to do better for people and planet.
CGIAR Researchers, including WorldFish’s Research Program Leader for Value Chains and Nutrition, Shakuntala Thilsted, was part of a panel discussion on how to strengthen our food systems to secure good and nutritious food for all. During the live event, we discovered the final resilient ingredient part of the series of cooking demos on resilient food, while participants get a snapshot of resilience from a scientific perspective, in the field, and in the urban landscape.
