The Global Food Politics Group (GFPG) is a group of researchers based at the University of Waterloo working on projects that focus on the political, social, economic and ecological dimensions of various global food and environmental issues.
The challenge of feeding the world’s population is one of the most pressing environmental issues facing humanity. Many current food production methods have negative environmental impacts that endanger not only sustainability but also future food security. Environmental sustainability goals, however, have not yet become central to food security governance arrangements at the international level. The Global Food Politics Group’s research touches on various aspects of this important challenge.
