Jacques Diouf, Director-General of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, says that in order to feed the expected 9.2 billion person world population that is expected by 2050 we need to focus on increasing productivity in agricultural production rather than increasing land that is farmed. He also notes that we need to focus on irrigation practices for conserving water and allowing water to reach those areas that need it most. The UN will host a series of meeting over the next few years to discuss how to reach these goals.
Great answer Rachel! Cecilia, to add to Mrs. K’s answer, I’d suggest a removal of the majority of agricultural farmland entirely, with replacement solar/water powered hydroponic deep ocean water culture greenhouse-farms located on the ocean. In theory, small stations positioned in county-sized increments around a continet could potentially provide the lack of resources we so desperately need. Hope I helped, and have a green day!
