It is widely known that the world population is expected to grow in population to reach 9.6 billion by 2050. With limited agricultural land, water security issues, infrastructure and biodiversity challenges coupled with climate change, this population explosion is leading us towards an impending food security crisis.
There is a need to build resilient food systems that enable people everywhere to get the nutrients they need from birth, thus eliminating the blight of hunger and malnutrition and the effects that it causes in the long-term, both to individual people and to the health and wealth of the societies they live in.
Global corporations are waking up to the need for sustainable development, responsible land use and fair prices. Whilst world leaders continue to work towards feeding the future as well as ensuring sustained economic growth across the developing world.
In 2014 we will bring together a high-level group of policy-makers, industry chief executive officers, NGOs, scientists and agricultural pioneers from all over the world to explore the crucial business measures and public-private cooperation needed to create sustainable solutions for future food security.
