Season 4

Episode 8: Global food (in)security

June 15, 2023

"We need to keep that investment flowing to come up with better ways to do this so that everyone is fed within the constraints of what the planet is able to bear," says Peter Ceretti, Director of Global Macro Geo Strategy at Eurasia Group

In the latest episode of Living Beyond Borders, a podcast produced in partnership between GZERO and Citi Global Wealth Investments, Ceretti is joined by Harlin Singh, Global Head of Sustainable Investing, and Malcolm Spittler, Global Investment Strategist and Senior US Economist, both at Citi Global Wealth Investments, to discuss the latest causes and ripple effects of food shortages around the globe.

Following shortages that came out of the COVID pandemic as well as the war in Ukraine, the dual food problems of affordability and availability persist. While temporary impacts may be waning, the experts also discuss the longer-term impacts of the global food production system on the environment and what will - or won't - be sustainable going forward, including the food system's massive dependence on fossil fuels.

This episode is moderated by Shari Friedman, Eurasia Group's Managing Director of Climate and Sustainability.
