Dimensions of Inequality: Food Insecurity

Unequal Worlds #8

Food is at the core of the UN’s development agenda for the 21st century and several SDGs explicitly focus on food system challenges. Food production, distribution and consumption are linked to inequalities in a myriad of ways, and in this episode we explore inequality through the lens of food. In this discussion GRIP’s Elina Troscenko is joined by Ingunn Marie Stadskleiv Engebretsen; Professor, Centre for International Health at the University of Bergen and Hanne Rosendahl-Riise, Associate Professor at the Department of Clinical Medicine, University of Bergen.

Hanne and Ingunn led the course Food Security for 8 Billion; Closing the gap with commitments, sustainable measures, and research during  Bergen Summer Research School 2022. Bergen Summer Research School is a partnership of NHH Norwegian School of EconomicsWestern Norway University of Applied SciencesChr.
