Food Security White Paper

By 2050, we will need to double agricultural production to feed a growing population. How do we do that without further stressing our environment, bringing millions of acres of marginal land into production, decimating our natural forests and further threatening endangered species? How do we grow twice as much without further exhausting our already stressed water resources?

This paper highlights the challenges before us in the 21st century and the essential role modern agricultural technology must play in doubling production on already cultivated land. It describes how a Second Green Revolution can enable us to "grow more from less," protect our natural environment, and create the conditions for lasting food security for all the world's people.
