Interview with Dr. Steffanie Scott about Food Systems, Food Security and Sustainable Agriculture
In this episode, I spoke with Dr. Steffanie Scott, professor in the Department of Geography and Environmental Management at the University of Waterloo, and active researcher on sustainable food systems, ecological agriculture and organic sector developments. In our conversation, we talked about her recent co-authored book called ‘Organic Food and Farming in China: Top-down and Bottom-up Ecological Initiatives’, as well as international food systems, agriculture, food security and lots more. This is such a big and complex conversation, but I was really grateful for the opportunity to have Steffanie take me through it.
