Defining Resilience and Diversity in Agriculture

Date: Tuesday 11th November
Time: 9.30am – 3.40pm
Venue: HSBC Headquarters, Canary Wharf, London

Ensuring a resilient and diverse agriculture and one that is socially, economically and environmentally sustainable, is perhaps the most important societal issue we face.


Ensuring a resilient and diverse agriculture that is socially, economically and environmentally sustainable is amongst the greatest global challenges. 

This year’s President’s Event will bring together some of the evidence of the impact of agricultural diversity on productivity, pest and disease control, ecosystem services, nutrition and health. It will also explore the potential to minimise the effects of climate change on farming, specifically relating to crops, livestock, biodiversity, our markets and diets.

A wide range of speakers have been drawn from across the food, farming and research sectors, including Dr Gordon Jamieson, The John Innes Centre, Dr Grant Walling, JSR Ltd, Fraser McKevitt, Kantar Worldpanel and LEAF Demonstration Farmers Patrick Barker from EJ Barker and Sons and Andrew Francis, from Elveden Farms. They will be joined by LEAF Chairman, Stephen Fell and LEAF Chief Executive, Caroline Drummond MBE.
