Evan Fraser currently holds the Canada Research Chair in Global Human Security in the department of geography at the University of Guelph. His work is on challenges to food security over the next two generations, during which time population growth and climate chan ge threaten to make food harder to produce and more expensive to buy.
He has worked extensively with climate modelers, economists, ecologists, anthropologists, and journalists to explore possible solutions to this global challenge.
He has written two popular books on food and sustainable agriculture including Empires of Food: Feast, Famine and the Rise and Fall of Civilizations and regularly talks to the media on these topics.
