The Department of Geography in collaboration with the Brighton and Sussex Universities Food Network (BSUFN) and the Sussex Sustainability Research Programme (SSRP) are organising a weekly seminar series on “Food, Climate and Society”. This series will explore the multiple challenges that the global food system is facing: feeding more people healthy food while limiting environmental and social impacts.
This week Dr Carole Dalin (Gratham Research Institute, London Schoool of Economics) will be giving the seminar on the topic of Water for Food: global, regional and domestic virtual trade networks.
Carole Dalin’s research concentrates on the water-food-energy nexus of Southern Africa, and on the socio-economic implications of climate forecasts, regarding natural resources management in particular. She works with Declan Conway, on the SAHEWS project (Southern Africa’s Hydro-Economy and Water Security).
Her doctoral thesis focuses on water resources transfers, through Chinese and international agricultural trade.
The seminar will be held on Thursday the 18th of February from 12:30 until 14:00 in Arts C Global Studies Resource Centre, University of Sussex campus.
