It's not rocket science - but it is climate science.

All day at the Chicago Council Food Security Symposium, the message was simple: in the face of climate change and the extreme weather it brings, food security may be our greatest challenge - but it is a solveable one. With current technology, with better resource management and improvements on farming techniques to boost efficiency without taking up more land, it is possible to feed the planet. It will, however, require a coordinated, collaborative effort involving governments, NGOs, farmers (both large and small) and the private sector to work. It's a complex challenge, but a solveable one.
