A small farm future Many governments see farm expansion as the future of agriculture, but there's a grave risk that this will simply embed the challenges inherent in today's food system. Instead we need diversity - and small farms play a critical a role.
ffinlo Costain talks to Chris Smaje, author of A Small Farm Future, published by Chelsea Green.

Urban food Most people live in cities, urban conurbations and housing estates rather than in cottages next to farms. How can we shorten supply chains into cities, bring food production to urban areas, and support volunteers and micro business opportunities for citizens, farmers and growers?
ffinlo Costain is joined by Jeremy Iles from the Urban Agriculture Consortium and Rachel Hammond from Edge.

The food price crisis The war in Ukraine has sparked a food price crisis with devastating impacts being felt around the world - but while Russia lit the touch paper, this crisis was predicted and could have been avoided.

Jennifer is an expert for Brussels-based IPES-Food and the Canada Research Chair in Global Food Security and Sustainability at the University of Waterloo in Ontario - she's also Vice Chair of the High Level Panel of Experts on food security and nutrition of the UN Committee on World Food Security. Margot and Thin are food system reporters for Lighthouse Reports, a non-profit investigative journalism group, which is based in the Netherlands.

Lessons from Ukraine - Coming soon Our next programme will be out next week, but forgive me if I take a moment to let you know about a Food & Global Security Network panel event that we're running online on Thursday the 7th of July.

It's called Lessons from Ukraine - we have a fantastic panel of experts - there's no charge, and you can book a place through our website at foodandsecurity.net

What does war in Ukraine, and the global response to conflict, tell us about global food production and the structural weaknesses in food systems more broadly? Is this conflict a taste of things to come, as major food and fossil fuel-producing nations begin to strategically reposition their economies? And what does the response to this conflict tell us about the power of the agricultural lobby and the levels of global policy support for an agroecological transition?

I'll be joined by Chantal Clement from IPES Food, Patrick Holden from the Sustainable Food Trust, Joona Mikkola from Soil Watch, Sue Pritchard from the Food, Farming and Countryside Commission, and Reginaldo Haslett-Marroquin from the Regenerative Agriculture Alliance.

Please sign up to join us for the conversation at foodandsecurity.net

Localism & nationalism A regenerative agricultural and environmental transformation depends upon a resurgence of localism - but localism is also championed by far right politicians who pronounce their own vision centred on a tough approach to immigration. How we can safeguard food systems in a more ecologically chaotic world with accelerating human migration? Can we find a popular but inclusive vision of national localism?
ffinlo Costain is joined by Natalie Bennett of the Green Party of England and Wales, and by Sue Pritchard, the chief Executive of the Food, Farming and Countryside Commission.

The one with Six inches of Soil In this programme, we discuss a feature film, Six Inches of Soil, which is currently in production in the UK. The film is being crowd-funded by organisations and individuals, and its producers want to ensure that - even as we are driven towards an ecological precipice fuelled in part by an industrialised food system - we recognise that the dirt beneath our feet is what feeds us and makes our societies strong.
ffinlo Costain is joined by Colin Ramsay, the director of Six Inches of Soil, and by Claire Mackensie, the film's producer.

The politics of protein In this programme, we're talking about meat, fish and protein alternatives - and the competing claims about sustainability that are made by individuals and vested interests across the food sector and around the world.
IPES Food has released a new report, The Politics of Protein, and to discuss it, ffinlo Costain is joined from the USA by lead author, Phil Howard, and from Brussels by the director of IPES Food, Nick Jacobs.
