Journalist Lisa Palmer will address the link between climate change & food security in Durham and Manchester on Tuesday, October 17
Journalist Lisa Palmer has traveled the world documenting the cutting-edge innovations of people on the front lines of fighting the food gap. She will share the story of the epic journey to solve the imperfect relationship between two of our planet’s greatest challenges: climate change and global hunger, as chronicled in her new book, Hot, Hungry Planet. Palmer will appear as part of UNH's International Seminar at 12:40 PM in Durham and then at UNH Manchester for Global Tipping Points at 6 PM.
NH link: Did you know our state’s farms have been increasing (including a big rise in young farmers) and 30% of agricultural sales to the public come from local farms? But, a longer growing season due to climate change could mean higher heat stress and new pressure from invasive weeds and pests.
Series presented in partnership with UNH and UNH Manchester's homeland security, history, humanities and politics and society programs; Program partner: League of Conservation Voters
