Innovations in resource management to improve food security and sustainable agriculture
23 May 2014

The major staple crops, such as wheat, potatoes, maize, rice, etc., account for over half of global food production by tonnage, but with the global population due to climb to 9 billion by 2040, concerns are being voiced as to whether we are prepared to manage our resources to meet future demand. Sustainable use of water, better human capital development in the agricultural sector, improvements in weather resistant strains, and other innovations can have a significant impact on yields, particularly in arid climates. What steps should be taken to better manage agro-industrial resources? What are the potential costs and benefits when introducing new technologies to increase the yields in crops, and which economies are best positioned to move to more sustainable production?
