GODAN Scientific Lead Suchith Anand was at the Just Food Future Conference, hosted by Sheffield University in the United Kingdom on July 9, 2019, representing GODAN and presenting on the topic of Empowering Small Holder Farmers with Open Data.
Sponsored by the Sheffield Food Futures Research Centre and the RGS-IBG Food Geographies Working Group, the conference brought together academics, practitioners, food thinkers and policy makers to consider contemporary approaches to addressing current food issues. Political and economic uncertainty look set to continue beyond 2019. Combined with macro-scale anxieties around food safety, public health, global environmental change and the sustainability of food production, discussions around food futures and alternatives for food systems remain pertinent and timely.
