An interesting article on the African Swine Fever (ASF) which has now hit Sth Korea piqued my interest in creating this topic. We have seen how rapid Climate Change has, can & will affect our food sources. This spread of ASF however is perhaps more about how as we become more mobile globally and industries move tech and food supplies around the world how we can manage to spread problems as well to our food supplies. I am not sure how the ASF has manged to spread but if the warnings are to be believed (I don’t see why they shouldn’t be) then a lot of the World’s & in particular Asia’s protein source could be at risk.
What measures do we need to take to protect food security is this much more open world?
How do we build resilience in our food supplies to avoid catastrophe?
How as consumers can we be better prepared or is there not much we can do?
