Concurrent Session C1- Understanding the Impacts of Climate Change on Nutrient Density in Food: A Scoping Review Study

The United Nations predicts the world population will rise to a staggering 9.7 billion people by 2050 (2019). At the same time, as the climate begins to warm, global food production will be strained. To mitigate the impacts of climate change, much of the global agricultural community has focused efforts on increasing crop yield.The two methods of climate change examined in this research are elevated CO2 (eCO2) and elevated temperature (eT). Using a scoping review methodology, fifteen articles were found examining the impact of eCO2 or eT on thirteen different nutrients.In sum, this thesis aims to inform the conversation about future agricultural research by highlighting the impacts climate change is having on food quality, and subsequently, population health.
