Call for Papers
International Conference on Climate Change and Food Security (ICCCFS)
Co-organized by the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Science (CAAS) and International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI)
6-8 November 2011, Beijing, China
Background
Great food security advances have been made over the past half-century, but many people remain
food-insecure. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimates that approximately 1 billion
people were undernourished worldwide in 2010. Though population growth is expected to plateau at
9 billion people by 2050, continued population and consumption growth will add pressure to the
already-unmet global demand for food for the foreseen future. At the same time, growing competition
for land, water, and energy, and the overexploitation of fisheries, will seriously impair the production
of food. The effects of climate change make the situation more challenging. One of the greatest tests
for the 21st century will thus be ensuring that the global food supply sustainably meets the needs of
billions of people despite the difficulties posed by climate change. Meeting this task will require
technical and institutional innovations that increase food production and facilitate adaptation to
changing climatic conditions.
In response to this challenge, the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS) and the
International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) are jointly hosting an International Conference on
Climate Change and Food Security in Beijing, China. This conference will provide a forum for leading
international scientists and young researchers to present their latest research, exchange ideas, and
share their insight into climate change and food security during technical sessions, poster sessions,
and social events.
You are cordially invited to deliver a paper at this symposium. All papers will be peer-reviewed.
Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings and may also be selected for
publication in two international SCI journals.
Venue
Friendship Hotel, Beijing, China
