Comments invited on BBSRC food security report

Earlier this year, BBSRC's Food Security Strategy Advisory Panel established a broadly-based, time-limited group to advise on the Council's role (potentially with others) in relation to the sustainable intensification (SI) of agriculture.

The role of the working group was to consider how BBSRC could best contribute to supporting research or related activities (infrastructure, training and skills, translation of research into practice etc.) relevant to SI.

The group presented its independent advice to BBSRC in a report which can be downloaded from the PDF below (BBSRC Sustainable Intensification of Agriculture Report). The group proposed four thematic areas in which BBSRC could contribute to SI, identified a number of cross-cutting issues relevant to more than one theme, and made a set of associated recommendations.

Comments were invited on the report and a brief account of the comments can be found on our Agriculture and Food Security Strategy Advisory Panel page.
