ACHIEVING FOOD SECURITY: Private Sector Solutions for Global Development Challenges

Food Security US Chamber

With mass urbanization around the world, the global demand for food is rapidly increasing while cultivatable land is decreasing. As a result, crop production needs to become more efficient and scalable. By the middle of the current century, the world population will reach 9 billion and the current food requirement will grow by 50%. To ensure the food security in developing nations, governments and farmers need holistic and scalable solutions for food production and crop management. Low-income farmers will face challenges on selection of crops, use of quality fertilizers, and pesticides, which will lead them to incur high production cost and supply chain management issues.
