This webinar series is based on a collaborative research study that seeks to identify and test climate adaptation and mitigation strategies in fruit and vegetable supply chains. The project is jointly managed by investigators at the University of Florida and Agriculture & Food Systems Institute, in close collaboration with researchers at the University of Arkansas, University of Illinois, International Food Policy Research Institute, World Agricultural Economic and Environmental Services, and Washington State University.
The event aims to present the project's findings in a way that is immediately actionable for the many stakeholders who are involved, both directly and indirectly, in US supply chains for these essential foods. Participants will learn about the remarkable resilience in these supply chains, surprising opportunities for certain food preparation methods to significantly reduce carbon footprints, and the massive role consumer waste plays in overall environmental impact. Speakers will also present how the project's unique, integrated approach has helped the team tackle a broad range of other fundamental questions about future food supply chains.
