Feeding a Growing Global Population

Presentation by Jonathan Foley from the Institute on the Environment at the University of Minnesota.

How will nine billion people be able to eat without undermining the very basis for food production? This was the starting point for a seminar in Stockholm on 7 November.

The seminar, which was organised by the Swedish International Agriculture Network Initiative (SIANI) brought together international leaders with early-career researchers working on global food security.

In this presentation, Jonathan Foley articulated the key challenges to global food security and highlight the latest trends and projections.

Foley recently co-authored together with centre director Johan Rockström and others the article Solutions for a Cultivated Planet which was published in Nature in October 2011.
