Global Food and Farming Futures – Lead Expert Group
The Foresight Project on Global Food and Farming Futures addresses the question: 'How can a future global population of 9 billion people all be fed healthily and sustainably?'
Looking forward to 2050 the Foresight team and the Lead Expert Group examined the global food system and considered issues of sustainable food production, demand, and distribution in an environment of climate change, environmental stress, and competing demands for land, agriculture, and aquatic resources.
Sherman Robinson of the Globalisation team and Lawrence Haddad, Director of IDS, are members of the Lead Expert Group. Dirk Willenbockel of the Globalisation Team also worked on background research supporting the project.
The project's final report was launched in January 2011.
