7 Projects to Make Progress on Ethics and Global Food Security in 5 Years

The Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics, along with the Bloomberg School of Public Health and the Nitze School of Advanced International Studies, launched the Global Food Ethics Project to take on the challenge of working through conflicting visions of what it means to feed the world ethically and find a concrete path forward even in the absence of consensus about ethical commitments and values.

The main product of the first phase of the Global Food Ethics project is the 7 by 5 Agenda for Ethics and Global Food Security.

We are happy to share with you the efforts of a collaborative meeting Prof Capri took part in last year. Our international working group was given the task to establish a near term research and policy agenda for global food ethics that that would make a significant, practical contribution to global food security.
The 7 by 5 Agenda for Ethics and Global Food Security, report includes seven global food ethics projects we deemed particularly worthy of investment because of their importance and tractability. For more information on the project, please click here:

Any feedback on those projects or suggestions for carrying them out are welcome.
