What Will it Take to Feed the World Sustainably?

Friday, October 24, 2008
Authored by: 

With the worlds population growing toward 9 billion--coupled with rising incomes, expanding meat consumption, and increased allocation of cropland for biofuels--the goals of meeting basic food needs, reducing global hunger, and preserving the health of the planet will become ever more challenging. In this public talk, Dr. Rosamond Naylor, fellow at Stanford University's Institute for International Studies, examines this challenge in the context of key countries, food-feed-fuel connections, and increased instability in commodity and financial markets.
