The United Nations predicts that by 2050 the global population will reach 9.8 billion. Adequately feeding such a large number of humans demands a huge boost in food production. Changes in diet, climate and demography will pose challenges to food security. Increasingly wealthy Asian populations will opt for more meat, fruit and vegetables. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization projects that most of the increase in demand for animal protein by 2030 and beyond will come from developing Asia. Intelligent ideas for meeting nutritional needs requires input from innovators hungry for progress.

This event will open up debate around the economic and geopolitical risks involved in food production, and explore the ways science and technology can tackle them now and in the future.

The Economist: Feeding the Future Singapore will bring together leading thinkers from government, industry, NGOs, academia and agriculture to examine the varied and complex challenges and opportunities across the region.

Questions we will answer:

  • Which countries in APAC are most resilient and which are most susceptible to natural resource risks? What can we learn from the most resilient to support those facing the biggest challenges?
  • With global issues such as migration, climate change and trade policies having a direct impact on food security how can countries ensure they are prepared for known and unknown changes?
  • What wins: quantity or quality? When resources are scarce is it more important to produce plenty of low cost, poorer quality food than to focus on nutrition and a varied diet?
  • Who is responsible for ensuring food is affordable?
  • How can governments, businesses and every stage of the supply chain work together to improve affordability without driving down standards?
  • With public sector investment in agriculture and R&D often tight what other sources of financing and investment can fill the void?
  • Agri-tech and food-tech products and services offer exciting opportunities to streamline production and reduce inefficiencies. What type of products will have the biggest impact and over what timeframe? Will new jobs emerge or will technology replace the need for employees?
  • As rapid urbanization continues what will be the positive and negative impacts for rural economies?
  • How can food production processes have a beneficial environmental impact?
  • What are some of the innovative ways agricultural waste can be recycled?

Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which
blog platform are you using for this website?
I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because
I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform.

I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
