Nasa scientist wins prize for research on food and climate




Global Report

A Nasa scientist who has spent much of her career explaining how global food production must adapt to a changing climate has been awarded the World Food prize. Cynthia Rosenzweig, an agronomist and climatologist, was awarded the $250,000 prize in recognition of her innovative modelling of the impact of climate change on food production. Rosenzweig said she hopes her win will focus attention on the need to improve food and agricultural systems to lessen the effects of climate change.
