On November 6th 2019, join Perpich Arts High School students as they respond to climate change through Visual, Media and Literary Arts, Theater, Dance and Music. Local climate experts and community initiatives will be presenting and sharing information to help educate the public on Minnesota climate change.
4:30 pm Welcome PCAE Environmental Leadership Team, PCAE Climate Change Leader Priya Dalal-Whelan
Climatologist Deepak Ray is a Senior Scientist with IonE’s Global Landscapes Initiative. He conducts research on local to global scale food security. Among the questions that he has explored are: does the productivity growth in crops tracks rising food demands and how climate change already impacts crop yields. To answer these and other broad questions, he works with colleagues from around the world using high-resolution global crop statistics that he builds. His analysis is geared to help NGOs, industries, international organizations, and governments to make more informed policies and take decisions to capitalize on positives, and explore ways to overcome challenges faced in the agriculture and food security sectors. In the tricky area of gene edited crops he is involved in discussions for a cooperative governance approach for collective action with farmers, industry, NGOs, and academics. His goal is to explore through the agriculture lens ways towards a future in which people and the planet prosper together.
