This volume takes up the pressing issues of justice and responsibility that arise at the intersection of food and agricultural systems, environmental degradation, and global climate change. The diverse contributions examine both the various ways that food and agricultural practices contribute to environmental degradation, especially climate change, and the impact that climate change is having and will have on food and agricultural practices. Central questions include:

  • How can the connections between food and agriculture, environmental issues, and climate change best be understood?
  • What are the ethical and political responsibilities of various parties in relation to this nexus of problems?
  • Whose knowledge, concerns, and voices are, and should be, valued in making global climate policy and agricultural and food policy?
  • What are the limitations of existing policies, practices, and theoretical frameworks for understanding and responding to these complex problems?
