The role of food in the pandemic: food security, shocks and transformations

Season 1, Ep. 3

When you think about the corona virus currently sweeping the globe, chances are that ‘food’ is not the first thing that comes to mind. Yet food has amplified the devastating effects caused by COVID-19 and exposed vulnerabilities across our food system. This episode asks: how exactly is food related to the pandemic? And how can we redesign our food systems in a way that helps us avoid similar crises in the future? 

In this episode Amanda Wood talks to Jess Fanzo from the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics, and Line Gordon from the Stockholm Resilience Centre at Stockholm University. Both researchers are experts on global food systems and the links between people, the environment and food.
