  • Transforming Food Systems for a Rising India

    Transforming Food Systems for a Rising India examines the interactions between India’s economic development, agricultural production, and nutrition through a food systems lens. The Indian growth story is paradoxical. Despite multiple decades of economic growth, malnutrition and food insecurity persist. Growing populations and growing incomes have simultaneously increased demand for diet diversity and put pressure on agricultural systems. Rising trends in obesity along with non-communicable diseases, waxing regional inequality, and the looming influence of climate change forewarn us of a future public health crisis. This book provides an integrative Food Systems Approach (FSA) that captures these complexities while highlighting some of the major opportunities and challenges that lay ahead for creating a nutrition-secure future.

  • Agriculture & Food Systems to 2050

    This book features a comprehensive foresight assessment, exploring the pressures — threats as well as opportunities — on the global agriculture & food systems between now and 2050. The overarching aim is to help readers understand the context, by analyzing global trends and anticipating change for better planning and constructing pathways from the present to the future by focusing on the right questions and problems. The book contextualizes the role of international agricultural research in addressing the complex challenges posed by UN 2030 Agenda and beyond, and identifies the decisions that scientific leaders, donors and policy makers need to take today, and in the years ahead, to ensure that a global population rising to nine billion or more combined with rising incomes and changing diets can be fed sustainably and equitably, in the face of the growing climate threats.
