The Global Food and Environment Institute focuses on food security and environmental protection. It draws together expertise from across the University to address these linked challenges. The institute will harness strengths in environment, agriculture, transport, food and health research.

Demand for food, fuel and clean water will rise as the world population is set to reach 10 billion by 2050. We need to be able to feed current and future populations without sacrificing our environment.

We work in partnership with N8 Agrifood and are creating valuable networks with academic partners, industry, policy makers and non-governmental organisations worldwide to deliver the impact required for global change. Our four priority areas aim to tackle many of the sustainable development goals set by the United Nations.
