PODCAST: Is There Enough Food for Our ‘Hot Hungry Planet’ | UN Dispatch

Lisa Palmer is the author of the new book Hot Hungry Planet: The Fight to Stop a Global Food Crisis in the Face of Climate Change. As the title suggests, the book examines the intersection of climate change, population growth and the politics of food all — of which we discuss in this episode.

Lisa is a journalist who writes for both popular and academic outlets. She’s been covering climate change and environmental issues for many years and she discusses how her upbringing in an agrarian community informed her career path.

We discuss how fighting food insecurity requires a very broad-based approach that touches on politics, technology, women’s empowerment and many, many other issues.
