The Future of Food
Land is a finite resource. Land is the source of all our food. Today, 1.02 billion people already go to bed hungry. Two billion more suffer from malnutrition. By 2050, we will need to double food production as world population grows by 3 billion. But there is only 5% more arable land available on Earth. What’s the way forward? Leading food and agriculture scientists from the United States, Africa, and Europe ponder the future of food.
