While feeding 8 billion people, current food systems have negative impacts on the environment, human health and on social equality. Join us for this webinar where experts will present key leverage points to mitigate food system impacts and utilize a positive tipping point framework to exemplify how technological innovations, strategic policy design, and human agency can help accelerate a food system transformation. 

The Tipping points discussion series supports efforts to increase consistency in the treatment of tipping elements in the scientific community, develop a research agenda, and design joint experiments and ideas for a Tipping Element Model Intercomparison Project (TipMip). It is a joint activity of the Analysis, Integration, and Modeling of the Earth System (AIMES) global research project of Future Earth, the Earth Commission Working Group 1 Earth and Human Systems Intercomparison Modelling Project (EHSMIP) under the Global Commons Alliance, and the Safe Landing Climates Light House Activity of World Climate Research Program (WCRP). IIASA co-hosts the scientific secretariat of Working Group 1 of the Earth Commission and is one of the organizers of these events.

This webinar will include presentations by:

  • Franziska Gaupp - Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Reserach (PIK) and IIASA alumna
  • Sol Kislig - University of Bern
  • Q&A / Discussion 

The session will be moderated by Tom Powell from GSI Exeter University.
