Food, culture, and climate white paper
USGCRP’s Social Sciences Coordinating Committee (SSCC) fosters integration of the methods, findings, and disciplinary perspectives of the social, behavioral, and economic sciences and interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches into USGCRP activities in support of the Program’s goals.
In Fall 2021, the SSCC hosted a three-part public webinar series on food, culture, and climate, with the goal of highlighting the ways in which social science research considers climate change in a socio-cultural context. The series, with sessions on terrestrial and marine food systems as well as applications, drew roughly 400 attendees over the three sessions. A new white paper summarizes the main ideas of the series.
