Making Food Secure.

Currently 4.4 million Canadians are living in food-insecure households and 1 in 6 households in Nova Scotia are food insecure. In this episode we hear from experts leading the way in research and response to food insecurity in Nova Scotia. Listen as we explore the concept of food security, the benefits of developing a food autonomy strategy, and research underway that can help us better understand and improve food security for all.

Working Together
Over the last couple of years, RNS has pursued a mission-oriented research strategy to tackle big, complex challenges in Nova Scotia. This strategy starts with what we want to accomplish, and builds a research agenda and coalition of partners to help achieve these goals. By focusing on the goal, we can support many different types of ideas all seeking to find common ground: science and social science, fundamental and applied research can each play a role.
As a province, we face many grand challenges; equally, we are rich in resources, assets and expertise that can grab hold of opportunities. But we cannot do it alone: we need creative and collaborative partners, researchers, and uptake organizations who are willing to work together to find solutions.

Have an idea about how we could work together to support achieving one or more of our missions? Contact us
