Shaping the Future of Food Security and Agriculture

How can the world feed 9.7 billion people by 2050? By 2050, a global population of 9.7 billion will demand 70% more food than is consumed today. Feeding this expanded population nutritiously and sustainably will require substantial improvements to the global food system – one that provides livelihoods for farmers as well as nutritious products for consumers. The World Economic Forum’s System Initiative on Shaping the Future of Food Security and Agriculture seeks to develop a long-term strategy and ways of working across the public, private and social sectors to achieve a 20% improvement each decade in food security, environmental sustainability and economic opportunity. This will be achieved through a marketbased and multistakeholder approach, in line with the New Vision for Agriculture (NVA). The System Initiative aims to: strengthen global food systems by developing new insights, facilitating collaboration on priority action areas to achieve healthy diets and sustainable landscapes, and mobilizing leadership and expertise at the global level ; achieve the New Vision for Agriculture by strengthening multistakeholder collaboration at the country and regional level, and by mobilizing new investments, partnerships and best practices to achieve concrete results.
