Event Description

Anticipated changes to the pattern of rainfall, drought, storms and very hot days across Australia will affect current forms of broad scale agriculture and hence the supply of food within the country.  But climate change, alongside a number of other factors, is likely also to affect the way we transport food to where most Australians consume it: our cities.  Drawing on recently completed research on urban agriculture, supported by NCCARF, this presentation will explore the scope for re-localising food production, processing and distribution as part of broader strategies for building urban resilience in Australia.

  • Speaker - Professor Paul Burton
    Professor of Urban Management and Planning in the Griffith School of Environment and Acting Director of the Urban Research Program.
  • Panelist - Rob Pekin, Founder, Food Connect
