Comments invited on BBSRC food security report

14th Oct 2014

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 the attached report (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 on any aspect of the report would be welcomed to help inform BBSRC's implementation of the group's findings. They should be sent to sustainable.agriculture@bbsrc.ac.uk by 14 November 2014. A brief response summarising comments received and outlining how they are being taken into account by BBSRC will be published before the end of the year.
