Feeding the World

World hunger: a crisis now and a catastrophe in 2050?
 

A global food security crisis is looming. The global population is expected to reach 9.6 billion by 2050. Alongside limited agricultural land, water security issues, infrastructure and biodiversity challenges plus climate change we face an uncertain future in food security.

But what does this mean for organisations that operate in this sector? Do you understand the risks as well as the potential rewards?

We will bring together 200 senior level stakeholders from all over the world to explore the opportunities to deliver improved nutrition and sustainable agricultural markets. Key speakers include:
 

Emma Duncan, Deputy Editor, The Economist
Paulus Verschuren, Special Envoy Food and Nutrition Security, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, The Netherlands
Sir Gordon Conway, Professor for International Development, Imperial College London
Amadou Allahoury Diallo, High Commissioner for the 3N Initiative (Food Security and Agriculture), Government of Niger
