Thursday, 7 December 2023 - 3.00pm
Location: 
David Attenborough Building, Room 2.49

Speaker: Prof. Cristiane Derani (Professor in International Economic and Environmental Law, Federal University of Santa Catarina | CEENRG Fellow, University of Cambridge)

The Cambridge Centre for Environment, Energy, and Natural Resource Governance (C-EENRG) is hosting a seminar series throughout the 2023- 24 academic year.

The global food system generates environmental and social impacts on a scale never seen before, being responsible for about 30% of the global GHG emissions. It is crucial to reformulate the legal system, especially in environmental, international, economic and commercial law, towards organizing food systems to produce environmentally sound and healthy food. The law can be a driver of the needed change, systemically interfering with the existing global food structure, decommodifyingfood, combining production with ecosystem restoration, and capturing successful experiences to provide food security in an environmental and equitable way. Some European initiatives and Brazilian grassroots actions are concrete examples of regulation and ecological efficiency in transforming the current global food system.

Seminars take place as hybrid meetings (in person seminars in the DAB - David Attenborough Building + online in Zoom) every Thursday (please check precise time as may vary) during the term. Please register online to receive the Zoom link on the day of the seminar. Everyone is welcome!
