PNAS: TO FEED THE WORLD IN 2050 WILL REQUIRE A GLOBAL REVOLUTION

Date : 9 December 2015

Paul Ehrlich of Stanford University and John Harte of University of California wrote an opinion article in PNAS stating that a global revolution is needed to feed the world in 2050.

 

The authors identified different policies that could be implemented as solution to the growing population and food insufficiency. These include expansion of research on better cropping systems with long-term sustainability; increase funding and reduce impediments to promote health, education, and human rights of women; and transition to a new economic system that focuses on central issues.
