ACHIEVING FOOD SECURITY: Private Sector Solutions for Global Development Challenges
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.
