Feeding the future world: securing enough food for 10 billion people
2008 (English)In: Water for Food, The Swedish Research Council FORMAS , 2008Chapter in book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
Following a long period of global progress, the last decade ha seen an increase in the number of undernourished people. Keeping pace with population growth remains a challenge in many regions, many of which also experience capacity problems to increase food production. If food prices continue to rise, hundreds of millions of hungry people might be added in just a few years which will also have severe impacts on development in general. To thwart this development, a combination of actions are necessary, ranging from productivity increase, changes in trade and market regimes, climate change adaptation and an increased focus on land and water management issues. The interconnectivity among issues adds complexity and must be addressed. However, it is important to focus on options and actions and not only get stuck in discussing problems.
