In the last decade, we’ve studied several options for resilient food solutions. We’ve looked at both low-tech and high-tech solutions, and we’ve identified the options that are most affordable and that will feed the most people quickly. We’ve assessed options for pilot projects in countries that could implement solutions most quickly, and we’ve studied how to respond to different catastrophes that could reduce food supplies and impact supply chains.
ALLFED recognizes four categories of catastrophes that have the potential to reduce global food production by 5% or more. Different categories of catastrophes overlap to some extent, and this potential for interaction between catastrophes could make each of them more likely, and more harmful.
