Scenarios for Global Agriculture and Food Security Towards 2050: A Review of Recent Studies

Published on 24 November 2014

The global food system will face an unprecedented concurrence of pressures over the next decades. The combination of population growth and rising per-capita incomes that will be accompanied by a shift towards more livestock-intense diets in parts of the world will translate into a substantial increase in the demand for agricultural output between now and the middle of the century. These demand-side driving forces are bound to intensify the competition for land and water, particularly in low-income regions with high population growth and a high present incidence of undernutrition.
