Food Insecurity in the World

An exposition at the UN on the Millennium Development Goals reminded me of why I work with food and agriculture. Despite the proximity to food production, poverty and food insecurity is often higher in rural areas than in urban, and agricultural development is central for increasing incomes for rural inhabitants. With a higher share of populations living in cities, sustainable food production and inclusive food markets will be critical over the next decades. Also, the fact that we with our global abundance let one person in seven go hungry on this planet is something that I think coming generations will find very difficult to understand.
