UQ Global Change Institute

The world’s population is expected to reach 10 billion by 2050. One of the biggest challenges we face is feeding two billion more people without incurring a detrimental environmental impact. Aquaculture is the fastest growing food production sector globally.
Climate change, natural disasters and the pandemic all reinforce the need to pivot the Agrifood sector in a changing landscape. Where and how we grow, produce, harvest and distribute food must adapt to achieve nutritional security of 10 billion people by 2050.
Traditional models of healthcare delivery are no longer sustainable. Seventy-five per cent of Australians over 65 have at least one chronic condition. Ineffective management of heart disease, asthmas, diabetes and other chronic diseases costs the Australian health care system more than $320 million per year in avoidable hospital admissions.
COVID-19 has accelerated the changing nature of work and threatened the viability of Australian organizational workspaces. Yet, we know workspaces are crucial for organisational and national economic survival. Workspaces are where the majority of employees perform tasks for organisational economic viability.
