The geopolitical developments and the pandemic in the last two and a half years have made us acutely aware of the frailties of global public goods, supply chains, and institutions. The weaponisation of financial systems and prominent symbols of globalisation has rung alarm bells around the world. How can global financial flows and mechanisms be ring-fenced from political blockages? Does the weaponisation of popular symbols of globalisation have real-value impact, or is it merely pandering? In such circumstances, what paths do nations have to genuine self-reliance? In an era of geopolitical conflict across kinetic, cyber, or ideological arenas, what can be done to prevent the weaponisation of everything? How can the international community ensure that the supply lines essential to health and food security, for instance, are protected from arbitrary political action?Tobias Lindner, Minister of State, Federal Foreign Office, GermanyPéter Sztáray, Minister of State for Security Policy, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, HungaryAnne Neuberger, Deputy National Security Advisor, Cyber and Emerging Technology, United StatesHarsh Vardhan Shringla, Foreign Secretary, Ministry of External Affairs, India Moderator: Indrani Bagchi, CEO, Ananta Aspen Centre, IndiaThe Raisina Dialogue is a multilateral conference committed to addressing the most challenging issues facing the global community.

It's estimated that 80% of an individual's health is determined by nonclinical factors, such as socioeconomic, behavioral and physical environments. Today more than 38 million people in the United States are facing hunger, including one in six children. Those struggling with food insecurity are at increased risk for chronic diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure. Hunger impacts their stress levels and ability to care for themselves and others. Hunger also impacts their performance at work and school; it's even been linked to suicide risk. Yet some of the most vulnerable communities don't know how to take advantage of free food resources. In this episode, members of University Health, a safety net hospital in Kansas City, share how they've been working to increase access to resources for one of their most food-insecure communities—immigrants and refugees. Guests: • Gloria Diamond, Director, Oracle Cerner • Susan Oweti, Supervisor of Cultural Health Navigation / Arabic Interpreter and Director of UH One World Food Pantry, University Health • Deborah Sisco, Manager, Patient Advocacy and Engagement – Quality Resources, University Health • Alison Troutwine, Project Manager, University Health Hear them discuss: • How does your cultural health navigator program help identify patients as food insecure? (1:30) • What feedback have you heard? (7:12) • How are social determinants of health being addressed at the community level? (10:54) • Tell us about how University Health formed a partnership with a local food bank? Why did you pursue that route instead of only doing referrals? (13:09) • Since many recipients of your pantry come from different cultures, how have you provided foods that are tailored to your community's needs? (15:00) • How do you build a food program that makes an impact and is sustainable for the long term? (20:10)
Thanks for joining us, today we welcome Jerry Hatfield, Jerry is the retired Director of the USDA-ARS National Laboratory for Agriculture and the Environment in Ames, Iowa, and his bio illustrates his passion and knowledge for helping growers improve their agronomic systems. Much of Jerry's focus has been on the evaluation of farming systems and their response to water and nitrogen interactions across soils and remote sensing methods to quantify field variation. A platform for his research utilizes the genetics by environment by management concept as a framework to work with producers to demonstrate how they can increase their production efficiency, increase soil health, and develop resilience to weather and climate variation as the foundation for food security. Today he and Monte dive into those topics and many more. Jerry worked in California at the University of California-Davis from 1975-1983 as a biometeorologist working a range of different crops, joined USDA-ARS in 1983 at the Plant Stress and Water Conservation Unit in Lubbock, TX until his transfer to Ames in 1989 to develop the research program of the National Soil Tilth Laboratory (renamed the National Laboratory for Agriculture and the Environment in 2009). His research focused on the interactions among the components of the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum and their linkage to air, water, and soil quality. His focus has been on the evaluation of farming systems and their response to water and nitrogen interactions across soils and remote sensing methods to quantify field variation. A platform for his research utilizes the genetics x environment x management concept as a framework to work with producers to demonstrate how they can increase their production efficiency, increase soil health, and develop resilience to weather and climate variation as the foundation for food security. His outreach efforts have included participation in the National Climate Assessment as the Lead Author for agriculture for the US and on the IPCC effort on greenhouse gases and climate change. Dr. Hatfield is an accomplished author with 508 refereed publications and 18 monographs and serves as the Editor for Agroecosystems, Geosciences and Environment and Technical Editor for Agriculture and Environmental Letters and ranks in the top 2% of researchers in the world. He edited several volumes including Crop Adaptation to Climate Change and Food Security and Climate Change. His numerous awards include being inducted into the USDA-ARS Hall of Fame for his research impact the Hugh Hammond Bennett award and the Soil Science Society of America Distinguished Service Award in 2022 along with being a Fellow in the American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, and Soil Science Society of America and serving as President of the American Society of Agronomy in 2007. He received his PhD from Iowa State University in 1975 in the area of agricultural climatology, MS in agronomy from the University of Kentucky in 1972, and a BS in agronomy from Kansas State University in 1971.

Germany's fresh and frozen food sectors are in the middle of their “worst crisis since the end of the Second World War” and could face a wave of bankruptcies and production restrictions, leading to gaps on store shelves, manufacturers associations have warned in an open letter to the German government. The traditional Central European industrial powerhouse has been hit hard by the largely self-inflicted energy crisis stemming from Brussels' decision to phase out Russian oil and gas to “punish” Moscow for its military operation in Ukraine. President Putin has warned that Europe is “in no position to dictate” its “will” to Russia on energy matters. “There is a significant risk of gaps in the daily food supply for people in Germany. The situation is more than serious,” the letter, addressed to Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Economy Minister Robert Habeck and Federal Minister for Food and Agriculture Cem Ozdemir and published by Welt, warned. The appeal was penned by the German Frozen Food Institute, the Association of German Cold Stores and Cold Logistics Companies, with five other industry groups including the Meat Industry Association, the Federal Fish Association and the German Fruit Trade Association. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/world-voices/support

In today's episode, we sit down with Joey: a Virginian who is returning to his culture & roots after betraying Appalachia in pursuit of the Rockies (but he came back, so we'll forgive him)! Joey and Chelsea jam on a vision for food systems that support our communities, reduce waste, and are rooted in shared community building and relationships: transformative, regenerative, sustainable models that contradict capitalism by nature. We surface the concept of radical self-reliance among our communities, and how fresh food offers so many options for ways to act in alignment with revolution. And, because of who we are here at Rednecks Rising, we talk about how critical trauma-informed approaches are to counter-organizing against the recruitment tactics of fascist groups.---More information & further reading from today's conversation:1) LEAP: Local Environmental Agriculture Project - https://www.leapforlocalfood.org/2) Harvest Collective - https://www.thc.coop/)3) Agrarian trust - https://www.agrariantrust.org/blog/cultivating-resiliency-in-roanoke-virginia/4) Appalachian Sustainable Development, West Virginia HIVE - https://wvhive.com/5) Anarcho-syndicalism: https://libcom.org/article/what-anarcho-syndicalism6) Anarcho-syndicalism continued: https://theanarchistlibrary.org/library/rudolf-rocker-anarchosyndicalism---To support this podcast or find us on social media, check out http://linktr.ee/rednecksrising

Researchers predict that climate change will negatively impact most staple food crops, including rice, corn, and soybeans. Therefore, climate resilient food crops – those that are salt, drought, and heat resilient – will have an important role to play in global food security. Examples of climate resilient crops include quinoa, kernza, amaranth, millet, and tepary […]

Sarah Cliffe is the director of New York University's Center on International Cooperation (CIC). Prior to that, she held several leadership positions at the World Bank and United Nations. Sarah pioneered the work on fragile and conflict-affected states at the World Bank, serving also as the Special Representative for the 2011 World Development Report on Conflict, Security, and Development. At the UN, she spearheaded efforts to help countries build civilian capacities to strengthen peacebuilding and post-conflict transitions. Sarah's vast experience ranges from countries as diverse as Afghanistan, Rwanda, South Africa, Indonesia, and Timor-Leste. She began her career in the United Kingdom and has degrees from Cambridge University and Columbia University. This episode is full of big questions and insightful answers from the very beginning. To start, we speak to Sarah about her formative years, and how her early impressions of fragility and conflict were actually shaped by her upbringing in a mining town in Wales at a time of social upheaval in the United Kingdom. She also shares her perspectives on what communities at risk in the UK, South Africa, and Rwanda had in common – and why some were more resilient. Our conversation then turns more conceptual, as we take a look at how the insights of her work at the World Bank on conflict, security, and development can help us understand today's global fragility trends. We then explore in depth the big challenges on the world stage ahead of the UN's General Assembly meetings in September. How are the growing tensions between the US, Russia, and China affecting global governance, especially the UN? How has Russia's invasion of Ukraine divided the international community and what are the perspectives of developing countries? What factors have influenced responses to refugees from Ukraine and beyond? How is the future of multilateralism intertwined with domestic politics? And are there any silver linings to geopolitical fragmentation and the new Cold War between the US and China? We conclude on a high note, talking about reasons to be hopeful – listen to the episode to hear Sarah share many more insights into geopolitics, fragility, and the future of global governance. We conclude on a high note, talking about hope and how history can give us reasons to be hopeful.

Food insecurity and hunger are known global challenges, and as a result, many people rely on local organizations to feed themselves and their families. As the largest food bank in the United States, the Houston Food Bank depends on its robust volunteer program to serve the Southeast Texas population, including home-bound individuals. As an Amazon Web Services (AWS) IMAGINE Grant winner, the Houston Food Bank developed a mobile application to streamline its home delivery service and, in turn, created a better volunteer and user experience. To learn more about the benefits of the cloud-based mobile app, the Fix This team sat down with Cara Gabris, director of distribution at the Houston Food Bank.
”Think about food design as a system. We are innovating at the product end, but we're also trying to innovate ….to get food that would be otherwise be wasted back into the food supply chain…(including through) canned (and frozen) fruit and vegetables, which are really good accessible nutrition,” especially in the face of climate change. Dr. Lara Ramdin on Electric Ladies Podcast We spend Labor Day weekend focused in part on food, from BBQs to picnics, to meals with friends and family. But our food supply is threatened by climate change – as we've seen with tons of food destroyed by droughts and floods. Today, there are 2.37 billion people across the world who are food insecure, including millions in the U.S. Believe it or not, packaged fruits and vegetables may be a way to address these challenges. How? Listen to Dr. Lara Ramdin, Chief Innovation Officer of Dole Sunshine Foods explain it and much more in this enlightening and inspiring interview with Electric Ladies podcast host Joan Michelson. You'll hear: What a circular food supply looks like, from farm to table to plant to table. How surprisingly nutritious canned, frozen and dried fruits and vegetables are – especially for people living in “food deserts” where fresh fruits and vegetables are scarce. How packaged fruits and vegetables help combat climate change, and reduce food loss from it. How design thinking is reinventing their process of developing new and more nutritious fruit and vegetable products, and more sustainable packaging for them that also retains the food's nutrition. Great career advice, especially for women in mid-career. “Look for things outside of your comfort zone…And, I think that, especially in mid-career and above, what becomes more important is…that whoever it is that you report to…understands what it is that you bring to the organization and what your strengths are and allows you to be authentic to yourself…and is also able to give you feedback and allow you to grow.” Dr. Lara Ramdin on Electric Ladies Podcast Read Joan's related Forbes articles here too.

Amid catastrophic flooding in Pakistan, UN humanitarians have raced to offer support to the Government, in the crucial early days of the relief effort. Beyond the immediate challenge of reaching all those stranded by the high waters, fears remain about next season's harvest, if the waters do not recede in time for planting. With more, here's the UN World Food Programme's (WFP) Country Director for Pakistan, Chris Kaye, who's been talking to UN News's Daniel Johnson.
John Harpole is the president of Denver-based natural gas broker Mercator Energy. In his third appearance on the podcast (previous episodes were on March 10, 2022, and May 25, 2021), Harpole talks about the impact that the shuttering of Europe's fertilizer plants will have on food prices and food security, soaring natural gas prices (on August 29, gas at the Dutch TTF hub was selling for $100 per mmBtu), deindustrialization, and how the shale revolution helped save the U.S. from the catastrophe now facing Europe.

Visit Our Sponsor: Foraged.Market This episode is a remaster of my first interview with Eric Toensmeier, originally recorded in the early days of the show way back in 2012 when I still lived on the land in Pennsylvania. I'm sharing this as a follow-up to the most recent episode before this one where Eric joined me for another interview to talk about his current work on Alley Cropping. Depending on when you are listening to this, if you haven't heard that show, definitely give it a listen. You'll find that right before this one in the archives. If you are not familiar with Eric and his work, he is the author of numerous permaculture and permaculture-adjacent books, all of which I highly recommend for your library. Most recently, that includes Carbon Farming: A Global Toolkit of Perennial Crops and Regenerative Agriculture Practices for Climate Change Mitigation and Food Security. Another title where Eric is the sole author is Perennial Vegetables: From Artichoke to Zuiki Taro, a Gardener's Guide to Over 100 Delicious, Easy-to-grow Edibles. He is the co-author, along with Dave Jacke, of Edible Forest Gardens and also wrote Paradise Lot with Jonathan Bates, the former of which is probably his most popular title in the permie community. Our conversation begins with Eric's bio. He then answers some listener questions on perennials, then delves into perennial plants, the broad-scale application of permaculture, and removing some of the fear factors of implementing a forest garden. Throughout you will hear both of us touch on plants we would like to see improved and simple ways anyone who is growing a garden can help domesticate and improve edible perennials. - You can find Eric at PerennialSolutions.org - His latest venture, The Perennial Agriculture Institute, is at PerennialAgriculture.Institute. - You can also read Eric's current writing and support his ongoing efforts at patreon.com/erictoensmeier.
