Abstract

Sustainably feeding the world’s still growing, increasingly richer, more urbanized and overall (but not equally, everywhere) ageing population during the decades ahead will still be a tall order. These projections indicate the task is doable, but by no means is complacency in order.

Notes

This Brief is a summary of "A Bounds Analysis of World Food Futures: Global Agriculture Through to 2050" published in the Australian Journal of Agricultural and Resource Economics in October 2014.
