Global Food Security: defusing the ticking time-bombs: Julian Cribb

Julian Cribb, science writer and author of 'The Coming Famine', (2010), gave a talk to Nature and Society Forum on March 20th 2013.

Feeding ten billion people through the second half of the 21st century presents the greatest challenge humanity has ever faced. While food demand will double by 2060 critical scarcities are emerging of almost all the key resources required to satisfy it. This challenges us to rethink food itself, how we process it, and how to create diets and foods for the future that are safe, healthy, nutritious, use fewer resources and tread less heavily on the planet.
