Abstract

Climate change is predicted to lead to a net decrease in food production, globally. Tropical zones will move from optimal growing conditions into extreme and prolonged summer temperatures. This will cause drops in productivity in areas where the bulk of malnourished people live. Growing seasons will likely get longer in temperate zones as climate warms but any gains will likely be offset by extreme weather events like drought, flood and bushfire. More species are documented as ‘on the move’ due to these changing climatic conditions, many are vital to our food security. This panel discusses the implications of food on the move for Tasmania and beyond, interrogating how our communities can adapt to secure a sustainable food future.
