UN report states world must produce 70 per cent more food by 2050
The world will need 70 per cent more food to feed a global population of 9.6 billion in 2050, and must achieve this through improvements in the way people produce and consume, according to a preliminary report released on 3 December by the United Nations, the World Bank and its partners. The report, entitled “World Resources Report: Creating a Sustainable Food Future,” finds that boosting crop and livestock productivity on existing agricultural land is critical to saving forests and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. It also recommends reducing food loss and waste, reducing excessive demand for animal products and following other “climate-smart” guidelines.
