Global Food System: In Numbers
Short video on the global food system shown in numbers. A large percentage of the 7.5 billion people on the planet receive an adequate diet in terms of calories but 770 million people are considered undernourished, several hundred million more suffer hidden hunger because of malnutrition, while 650 million are considered obese and this is growing. For every investment for $1 you get $30 back in terms of increase in overall economic productivity. By 2050 most projections are such that we will need a 70 to 100% increase in protein and calorie production in the world, 100% would equate to 10,000 years of historical food production needing to be matched in the next 35 years.
