FOOD SECURITY & AGRICULTURE

Food security and agriculture

With an increasing global population, 69% more food calories will be needed to feed 9.6 billion people by 2050. Increases in food related illnesses along with the need for more nutritional food to feed a growing population is a looming global challenge.
Agri-food research and innovation systems will need to change the ways in which they work to meet these challenges in a world of limited resources and increasingly hostile production environment. This theme will work to translate knowledge from the laboratory to the rest of the world in all areas of food production.
