Priorities for Public Sector Research on Food Security and Natural Resources, Review 1 by Charles Godfray, Oxford University

  1. 1. More to food system than food• Use many resources, result of human and natural capital• Food production takes place in multifunctional landscapes – Positive and negative externalities• Pervasive feedbacks• Modelling challenges – AgMIP really important
  2. 2. Food Security and SustainableResource Use: what are the resource challenges to food security? Frank Place & Alexandre Meybeck Review by Charles Godfray Oxford University
  3. 3. Sustainability• What do mean by, and how do we measures sustainability? – We know enough for no-regret actions• Ecosystem services approach – Young science, moving fast beyond MEA – Limitations (conceptual and practical)• Biodiversity – Clarity and priority – Ecosystem service substitutability
  4. 4. Land• Restoration versus conversion• Is no new conversion a “no regret policy”? – GHG, climate regulation, biodiversity, [wild food] – Equity and politics
  5. 5. Sustainable intensification• Genetic intensification – Water & fertiliser efficiency – Feed efficiency• Agronomic intensification – Precision agriculture – Rainwater harvesting• Market intensification – Leap-froging infrastructure – Novel financing – Better governance
  6. 6. Sustainable intensification• Genetic intensification – Water & fertiliser efficiency – Feed efficiency• Agronomic intensification – Precision agriculture • Major research – Rainwater harvesting challenges in natural and• Market intensification social sciences – Leap-froging infrastructure – Novel financing – Better governance
  7. 7. Private & public sector• Public sector – Pre-competition – Non-marketable – Public goods• Private sector – “Only 2% private sector research in LDCs” – Enabling financial environment – Appropriate regulation – Demonisation – Trade
  8. 8. Data & information• Huge opportunities – Multisectoral – Leadership (in-house work, metadata standards) – Private sector input – Modern ICT revolutionary• Could be transformational – Transparency to improve governance – Inclusive and participatory
