Using food demand and growth projections, Ünver will explain why linearly proportional increases in the allocation of land and water resources .. Read more towards increased food production are not realistic. Recent estimates of food demand, based on median projections of growth, call for a 50% increase in the global demand figure. Linearly proportional increases in the allocation of land and water resources towards increased food production are not realistic given the trends in competing uses for these resources. The speaker will discuss the response options available to the policy makers, based on most recent figures about the state of the resources and the trends, and both the need and the opportunities for cooperation across sectoral and disciplinary boundaries.
