Cambridge Global Food Security

An Interdisciplinary Research Centre at the University of Cambridge

“I believe that the challenges we face today are more complex than at any time before, and certainly affect all of us more immediately. Cambridge Global Food Security is breaking down the barriers between areas of knowledge, and seeding and nurturing global collaborations. It is part of the University’s mission to actively confront issues like food security, and be constantly prepared to deal with newly emerging questions that we did not know had to be answered.”

Professor Stephen Toope
Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cambridge
