Building a resilient food system is a complex process requiring innovation and partnership across diverse stakeholders (famers, ranchers, fishers, foragers, food processors, distributors, and consumers) at every step within the food system (food production, distribution, marketing, and consumption). Food systems have always been vulnerable to hazards like pests and bad weather, and with climate-related shocks and stressors adding to existing hazards, this is a critical time to discuss solutions that mitigate these vulnerabilities in a sustainable way to ensure long-term food and nutritional security.
