Centre for Global Development Annual Lecture
Professor Melissa Leach will talk about the new global challenges across agriculture, health and development we are facing due to rapid environmental and social change.
Professor Leach, from the Institute of Development Studies (IDS), Sussex, will give her lecture entitled 'Pathways to Sustainability: Environment, Health and Social Justice in a Complex, Dynamic Age' at the University on 3 November 2011.
Focusing particularly on the challenges of maintaining food security amidst climate change in Africa, and addressing emerging infectious diseases and pandemic threats, Melissa Leach will explore this 'pathways approach' in action, considering how and why powerful actors and institutions so often close down around particular framings of sustainability problems, committing to particular pathways that emphasize maintaining stability and control.
The event will be followed by a drinks reception.
The lecture will take place:
On: 3 November
In: Yorkshire Bank Lecture Theatre, Leeds University Business School
