Feeding a Growing World

Making enough food for the planet without contributing to climate change.

Right now, about a quarter of all global emissions come from feeding the world’s seven billion people. By 2050, however, there will be ten billion of us and we will need to find a way to feed more people without contributing to climate change. While that is a significant challenge, it is also an opportunity—not only to make farming less damaging to the climate, but also to find more efficient and productive ways to feed the planet’s growing global population.

Technical Quests

The amount of land on the planet is not going to grow, so most of the technical quests in agriculture involve either making more efficient, less wasteful use of land or finding new forms of nutrition. However, there are also many ways to explore decreasing the emissions released during food production.
