Global Food System Sustainability

Through synthesis science, these working groups are exploring ways to feed a growing global population sustainably.

Feeding a growing global population, which is expected to hit 10 billion people by 2050, while achieving environmental, economic, and social sustainability is one of the biggest challenges of our time. To enable policy decisions that will result in sustainable food production, we must get the big-picture on the impacts of all food production systems and how they compare under possible futures for human demand.

The following work groups are tackling parallel questions that will help shed light on ways forward for sustainable global food systems.
