The human population is expected to reach 9 billion sometime around 2050. Given that even at present around 1 billion people don’t have enough to eat, how can the world grow enough food to feed 9 billion? This talk illustrated the many factors which affect the availability of food (e.g. climate, waste and choice of diet) and gave suggestions on what each of us can do to help ensure that 9 billion people can indeed be fed.
This event formed a part of the RSE@Lochaber programme.
