THE GLOBAL INITIATIVE NETWORK

Richard Byrne

Dr. Richard Byrne, Harper Adams Univeristy

With over 20 years experience of agricultural and rural development, I now focus my energy on food security and livelihood issues related to conflict, disaster and modern slavery. Combining agricultural and food industry knowledge with geo-political awareness I regularly contribute to the development of livelihood strategies within fragile environments.
