Food security has emerged as one of the top items on the sustainability agenda.  So you might be interested in this lecture:

The new SFU Institute for Values in Policy and Science opening event:

“Policy in the Face of Complexity and Deep Uncertainty: Genetically Modified Organisms” 
Wednesday, March 9, 2011, 7pm

Dr. Sandra Mitchell
Department of History and Philosophy of Science, University of Pittsburgh 

Segal Centre, 555 Hastings Street SFU Harbour Centre Room 1400
Light refreshments at 6:30pm. Please RSVP at www.sfu.ca/reserve

How will genetically modified organisms impact biological diversity? How should we set human policies for global climate? The risks, unknown factors, and complexities challenge the traditional ‘predict and act’ models of policy making. This lecture suggests strategies for managing unknowns and setting reasonable policies.
