Agriculture is the key driver of global environmental change, producing over 25% of global greenhouse gas emissions while negatively impacting biodiversity, pollinator viability, and soil and water quality. Dr. Miles will discuss how the large-scale transition to more ecologically sustainable and “climate smart” agriculture will prove essential in meeting conservation goals and enhancing food security to address the affects of climate change. He will discuss recent international research findings offering key strategies for the future of food and agriculture in Hawai‘i and beyond on Wednesday, Nov. 18, from 11 a.m.-12:15 p.m. during an online webinar.
