About the webinar
As the lock-downs continue and the commentaries on food security and COVID-19 start to come in, what are we learning? What do we know, what trends are suggestive, and what is still unknown? Join us for a discussion on the implications of COVID-19 for agriculture and food systems, now and into the future.

The Ceres2030 project—a joint initiative by the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD), the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), and Cornell University—invites you to an online reflection on the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic for global food security.
