Sustainable intensification in agriculture


While clearly ‘food security’ is about far more than agricultural policy alone, the purpose of this report is to take a small part of the food security puzzle – agricultural policy – and to consider how it intersects with environmental, animal welfare and health policies. Its argument is that agricultural policy, if it is to help rather than hinder the ultimate goal of food security, needs to operate in an integrated manner with these other policy areas.


This report is based on discussions at a two day workshop in January 2012, co-organised by the Food Climate Research Network and the Oxford Martin Programme on the Future of Food, facilitated by Kath Dalmeny, Sustain, and funded by the Foresight Programme and the Oxford Martin Programme on the Future of Food.
