The Impact of Climate Change on Agriculture

A panel of experts discussed the global food supply system and the impact on Africa and the US.

Some may not believe in climate change, but the effect on growing our foods is without doubt according to four experts who gathered at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health for a panel concerning the impact of climate change on agriculture and the global food supply system, with an emphasis on the United States and Africa. 

This panel was moderated by Peter Thomson, environment editor at Public Radio International's "The World," and consisted of Gary Adamkiewicz, assistant professor of environmental health and exposure disparities at the Harvard Chan School; Margaret Walsh, senior ecologist at the Climate Change Program Office, U.S. Department of Agriculture; Calestous Juma, professor of the practice of international development at Harvard Kennedy School; and Caleb Harper, principal investigator and director of the Open Agriculture Initiative at the MIT Media Lab.
