The global food production system has become increasingly complex and intertwined with the domains of trade, security, and finance. At the same time, it continues to be very vulnerable to climate impacts such as floods, tropical cyclones, wildfires, droughts, and heatwaves that are becoming more and more common in an unstable climate.

Now more than ever, a drought in one major breadbasket, followed by increased food prices may pose a threat to the security of food import-dependent regions on the other side of the globe.

Negotiations span a whole range of issues, from the sustainability of global food supply to the balancing of environmental conservation with nutritional needs. The goal is to develop recommendations for a new set of regulations that will counteract the ongoing food crisis.

The negotiations are accompanied by unfolding storylines projecting a plausible future of food security available through an online, narrative-oriented experience with exploratory stories available in the interactive module.
