Economist Summit, 13 February 2014
Feeding the World 2014: Sustainable solutions for a global crisis

A high-level audience gathered in London on February 13th 2014 to discuss how to accelerate progress in coordinating efforts to tackle the planet’s food security crisis. Industry leaders, government, donors, aid agencies and the research community will explore opportunities to collaborate in delivering improved access to food and nutrition and sustainable agricultural development.

FANRPAN’s CEO, Dr Lindiwe Majele Sibanda took part in panel discussion at the Economist “Feeding the World” summit, which is being held for the third consecutive year.

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

What are leading policymakers, government officials, academics, NGOs and the private sector doing to prepare?
