The Climate Is Changing, And So Must Our Production Models 

BRA-Auditorium Fondazione Crb

The impact of food production on climate change is well-known, even if a small number of influential people deny the evidence. It’s also well-known that certain models of food production, commercialization and consumption are more friendly to the climate compared to others. The Italian Meteorological Society, in a research effort being conducted on behalf of Slow Food, is analyzing the scientific studies of recent years that have linked climate change and food production. How much does our food production impact on global warming? What are the challenges that herders and producers face across the world? Is it possible to feed the planet without aggravating our impact on the environment?
